This is way overdue and I'm going to attempt to post some fabulous images I've managed to take the last couple of years in between running my eBay business. I took this trip with Fran last summer from Toledo all the way to Point Vicente, New York. These images made my calendar for family for 2009 and it was a hit! Enjoy!

Not in any particular order -

Dunkirk Lighthouse
Image

Thirty Mile Point
Image

Braddock Point (private and was for sale last summer for over 2 mil - we stopped here about 9am and had permission from the owners to walk around their grounds)
Image

Charlotte-Genessee
Image

Sodus Point (I could have spent all day here)
Image

Sodus Outer
Image

Oswego Pierhead
Image

Selkirk (very quaint)
Image

Stony Point (also private, and the owners weren't home, so we had to take what we could get. The lighting was at the wrong time of day)
Image

Tibbets Point (one of my favorites)
Image

Grand Island Light (Buffalo area)
Image

Fort Niagara

Echoing Mike, you and your work have been missed here for too long a time ... thanks for the tour, especially Toledo Harbor ... Michael must be ready for college by now, no?

Hi guys! Mike, your boys keep you very busy I'm sure, if they are anything Michael - he's become devilish at 3 1/2, and if I remember your guys just turned three! Hard to believe Mary will be in third grade next fall and Michael starts his second year of preschool (1/2 days four days per week) and then for 2010-11 he starts kindergarden all day, every day, so I will be home with no more kids during the day - what a thought!

Jen,

Great photos as always. It makes me want to take a trip around Lake Ontario this Summer.

I may have seen some of these lights as a child- but I don't actually reacall them. I had family in the Niagra Falls and rochester area and we spent some summer vacations up there.
