We took a lovely Sunday drive (how quaint!) down the peninsula to Port Clyde, a small village on the southern bit. Small as in, a fishing port and a restaurant/bar. Some nice houses full people trying to escape the bustle of the Maine coast in summertime. And at the very end, guiding boats into the protected harbors, is the Marshall Point Light Station.

Our 2nd "Forrest Gump's Run" location this year... @ Marshall Point Light Station

Marshall Point Light Station

Recognize it? You should. It’s the East Coast terminus of Forrest Gump’s cross-country run. Yes, *that* lighthouse. We found it by accident, really, driving around the back roads after having a beer at The Black Harpoon (a great fishermen’s bar, if you’re interested).
