Stopped on a walk and could view this in Biddeford ,ME. So Pretty. Went to a sanctuary and you had some nice trails all along the water and a great view of the light house.

Not from the center of Biddeford Pool, but I'm sure there's a beautiful view from the Audubon walk on the eastern point of the Pool.
