Great to hear that more of you are at least thinking of coming for the 10/1 Maine cruise. Anyone wanting to be officially added to my list for the cruise, please email me at keeper@lighthouse.cc and let me know.

Just a note on the itinerary -- depending on the timing of the rest of the cruise, we may not go to Blue Hill Bay Light, but we might see Eagle Island Light instead. Also, we may have the chance to get off the boat for a stretch in the middle of the cruise at North Haven or Vinalhaven.

Another note on the itinerary -- in addition to Eagle Island Light, it looks like we'll also go near Pumpkin Island Light. Blue Hill Bay Light is doubtful. So that makes 9 lighthouses (conditions permitting): Matinicus Rock, Saddleback, Isle au Haut, Deer Island Thorofare, Heron Neck, Browns Head, Goose Rocks, Eagle Island, and Pumpkin Island.

I definitely would enjoy going on the cruise, and have started making plans to join the group. Have seen a few of the lights listed for the tour, but a second visit would be a bonus.
Crisis does not build character, it reveals it!!

Leah.

It's a LOBST'AH BOAT!! It's got a name called Nigh Duck, meanin' it floats nigh as good as one of them sea ducks down on thet part of the Downeast coast. Sea ducks float much bett'ah then does them harb'ah ducks thet spends most of the time perched on rocks and ledges and oth'ah things strckin' up out-ah the wat'ah. And for sure ya wouldn't be wantin' to go at lighthouse tourin' in a boat thet spent time fetched up on them rocks and things like that.

For havin' been down th'ah at Stonin'ton them two times in 25 years or so ago, and for havin' a Downeast name, Le'ah, ya shud ott'ah no bett'ah than to be expectin' sharks 'round the'ah. Least ways, not in Octob'ah. No reason what so ev'ah for them sharks to hang 'round after the food supply has left, all them tasty tourists havin' gone back south for wint'ah.

Call the moderat'ah! Ross is got his-self off topic! 8O
We is talkin' here 'bout all them necessary and important details of lighthouse tourin', not the fine art of apostrification.

I am attemptin' to prime you folks for what you will be hearin' from them Maine naitives while you're hangin' 'round thet wharf down the'ah in Stonin'ton waitin' to git on board the Nigh Duck :D 'specially if you stop in at the sto'ah in town or even before that if you be needin' to get yourself some directions :? along the road leadin' towards Stonin'ton so as you won't find yourself perched at the wrong wharf or at the wrong harb'ah watchin' the tourin' boat headin' into the Thorofa'ah, passin' on by the light on Mark Island :cry: headin' into the previous to Octob'ah shark infested wat'ahs of East Penobscot Bay.

(This might have become the longest sentence posted on LH.net 'cept for the fact that I shortened her up considerable for purposes of apostrophe conservation.)
