Lighthouses of Maine

My plan: Portland to Bar Harbor and nine lighthouses in three days. Somehow I thought I could just drive up highway 1, and they would all be alongside the road. Ha. The point of a lighthouse is that it's located on the coast, and Maine's coast is no straight line. Most of these were a 30-40 minute one-way detour off the main highway. Thus, I ended up driving about three hours per day just to see them all. I spent at least a half-hour to an hour exploring each one. Lighthouses have been my Maine dream for years, so I am happy I got to see so many.
