Maine’s oldest geocache is in Fort Williams Park near Portland. The walk wasn’t long or hard but the coordinates were about 25 feet off and the area was protected (?) by lots of mosquitoes and poison ivy. After a little searching, Dave soon had the cache in hand.

While at the park, we visited the Portland Head Light.

The Portland Head Light was first lit in 1791.

Isn’t that lighthouse so cool? We have been to that one. We love Maine. Looks like you had a nice day when you were there.
Hope your trip is progressing nicely and you are getting to all of the capitals!
Take Care!
