It’s cool to do, plus you will literally cool off.
Marcia and I parked down by the end of the Samoset and packed in
a lunch and spent less than an hour on this most amazing hike. You walk over an absolutely straight, flat, 7/8 of a mile highway out to a lighthouse. With the sun out , we saw down into the green water, and watched sailboats and working lobster boats glide by. There was even ample shade for us to eat our lunches as we sat on a Weatherend bench and gazed back out toward the astoundingly beautiful coast of Maine.
