I'm really looking forward to this one! I'll be doing some narration on board.

Friends of Flying Santa Lighthouses of Maine Cruise
Saturday, June 11, 2005, 10 a.m.

Friends of Flying Santa will be sponsoring  a fundraising boat cruise to view ten Maine lighthouses at 10:00 am on Saturday, June 11th. Departing from Bath, ME, the cruise will include the following lights: Doubling Point, Kennebec Range, Squirrel Point, Perkins Island, Pond Island, Seguin Island, Hendricks Head, the Cuckolds, Burnt Island, and Ram Island.

The tour will land at Burnt Island Light in Boothbay Harbor for a tour of this historic living lighthouse. On the return voyage the boat will also land at Perkins Island Light for a brief tour of the island. Please note that the landing and hiking on this island will require more than moderate physical agility. The majority of the cruise will be on inland waters, so the ride will be quite comfortable.

The boat has an onboard rest room, heated cabin, and refreshments. Tickets are $60 and may be ordered by mail, phone or through the website at www.flyingsanta.org. Phone (781) 438-4587. Box lunches may be ordered for an additional charge. Please contact Friends of Flying Santa for more specific information.

I made a slight error on the price and just corrected it. I still think this is an excellent price considering the number of lighthouses and the fact that we'll be landing at two of them -- plus the fact that people who buy tickets will be supporting the Friends of Flying Santa in their efforts to recognize Coast Guard personnel and their families in the holiday season, a tradition that goes back to 1929.

Sorry, Leah, that this cruise couldn't have been scheduled a day before or after the cruise from Stonington in October! This will be a good one, and I have a feeling it might be offered again in years to come, so you'll have your chance!

I wanted to remind people that tickets are still available for this cruise. Also, it's been confirmed that we'll have the rare opportunity to get into both the lighthouse tower and keeper's house at Perkins Island. This is really unusual -- hope to see some of you there!
