    It's a bit of a hike out here but it's worth the drive. This little lighthouse is adorable and the view is gorgeous. We missed the opening hours for the little museum but the experience of just being here was enough. Two small parking lots for adequate parking but the road getting there was too narrow for two way traffic so be careful if you have a large vehicle.

    This is the lighthouse from Forrest Gump! It's not spectacular, but it is well-groomed and charming. Very pretty. The museum is a great spot for picking up information about lobstering, lighthouses, and local history. The gift shop even has a nice little selection of items to remember your visit by. I also recommend taking a quiet moment at the fishermen's memorial in consideration for those lost at sea.

    Museum and shop were closed when we got there. Although they were pretty small. Great scenery. Cool lighthouse.
