A Trip to Port Clyde
Marshall Point Lighthouse
An interesting fact about this lighthouse is that it was seen in the movie "Forest Gump". In the scene where Tom Hank's character runs cross country and he ends by running up the wooden walkway and then turning around and starting over again.
The coast around the lighthouse was beautiful. Wildflowers grew all along the coast and I enjoyed walking around the area and capturing the beauty of the coast.

Port Clyde is a small town (just over 300 people) but I was delighted with all it had to offer. After we visited the lighthouse we drove down to the harbor, which is the center of the town. There we found a general store and a couple of restaurants. One was the Port Kitchen which was in the general store. There you could eat or have them pack you a picnic lunch to take with you on your excursion. The other choice was the Dip Net restaurant on the deck by the dock. We chose the Dip Net restaurant and enjoyed some wonderful lobster rolls sitting outside on the deck. They had several different ways you could have your lobster rolls fixed and my husband and I both chose to have our lobster sauteed in butter and then put in the toasted rolls. It was an excellent choice and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
The painter Andrew Wyeth lived in the area and now his son Jamie lives in the area on an island just off the coast. Upstairs from the general store is Linda Bean's Wyeth Art Gallery. Here you can purchase works by Jamie and also some rare prints of his father's.
