Hockomock Point LbNA # 33904 (ARCHIVED)
|Placed Date||Aug 8 2007|
The Hockomock Point letterbox is found at the Todd Audubon Sanctuary, which is located at the end of Keene Neck Road, off of Rte. 32 in Bremen, Maine. It has a nature trail that winds through woods and has a scenic lookout at the tip of Hockomock Point. According to the Sanctuary's brochure, "Common eider, black guillemot, osprey, and double crested cormorant can often be seen from the shore of the sanctuary. Tidal habitats teem with crabs, mussels, sea stars, and periwinkles among the rockweed." It's a pretty spot along an easy, 1-mile walk.
To find this letterbox, drive to the Audubon Sanctuary all the way at the end of Keene Neck Road. The parking is on the left as the pavement ends, and you will need to find the nature trail just downhill from the big red barn.
Follow the trail to the bench facing the ocean. There is a plaque on it that reads: In Loving Memory of James W. Noonan, 1928-1999. After sitting and enjoying the view, stand up and walk to the post with the #16 on it, then turn to face left. Walk along the trail about 12 steps, then look to your left for a low stone ledge with a rock along its bottom edge. Behind that rock you will find the letterbox.
If the tide is right, you can find your own mussel shells along the rocks in front of the bench. Hope you enjoy this pretty place.
