Looking for Forrest - Marshall Point Lighthouse, Port Clyde, Maine

Those who regularly follow me know of my fascination with lighthouses. I am not sure exactly why. Maybe because they are quickly becoming relics of the past with the advancement of GPS electronics,  maybe because they are often built in some wonderful location, or maybe because most of them have stories of sunken boats and how they were built to save lives. Whatever the reason, whenever I travel, I always am on the lookout for them. On this particular trip to Maine, I was co-hosting a Jeff Clow Photo Tour featuring the Maine Coast and it's lighthouses. One of the highlights of the tour was stopping at this particular lighthouse, the Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde. If it looks familiar to you, you probably have seen it before in the movies. The light was featured in the movie "Forrest Gump" (one of my favorites). In the movie, Forrest starts on a 3-year run across the country and back. When Forrest hits the east coast, he stops at a lighthouse (the Marshall Point Lighthouse), turns around and starts running back to the west coast.
