Great pics Dennis. And I did wave back. And I used all my fingers, too. :twisted:

I particularly loved the photo of the reflections at Pemaquid. That lighthouse is so photogenic it's scary.

Next time, come up in the summer season and take a trip with Captain Ethan out to the Seguin Island Lighthouse. He does the transport for the volunteer keepers, and the cost is $30. He'll take you out and come back to pick you up. We had 3 hours out on the island this past summer.

Photos from that trip are in my Flickr account if anyone is interested in seeing them, along with a few others.

Sue,

I'll keep that in mind for the future. I'm sure most don't understand your reference to waving back, though. :D

I put these up at flickr as well.

Sounds like we need to wear name tags on these cruises! I managed to find Paul Conlin, but that was all. Most of the time was spent elbowing Bob T. out of the way to get some good shots. 8)
Great shot Ross. That one photo op made the whole foggy trip worthwhile.
