Ok, here are some more from the weekend trip for you all.

But first while I have your attention some non-lighthouse photos from the day.

First up the Perkin's Island coastline


and the lupine at Burnt Island


Ok, back to the lighthouses.

After the cruise a few of us went over to the Doubling Point and Kennebec Range lights for a closer view. Here are the range lights on their own



this was hiding in the woods by the Doubling Point light - not sure why it was there, it just was - all a part of the experience of visiting this light I suppose



For those into Lifesaving Stations, the Popham Beach station is now a B&B http://www.pophambeachbandb.com/

So those were the sights for the cruise.

The next morning I was up early, can't say bright as it was a very foggy morning, and out to #300 Dice's Head where I was just about eaten alive by mosquitos again


And #301 before heading home was mosquito infested Fort Point


Oops! One more I almost forgot.

Here is a "Presidental" Photo op. All of us in this last photo are heads of New England Lighthouse Groups.


From left to right - Co-chair of Perkin's Island light (Oh Jeremy, could you help me out with his name? I can't remember, sorry), Brian Tague, President of the Friends of Flying Santa, Jeremy and myself.

Ok, think I've given you more than a few photos to check out this evening!

Ok. So when is the best time to visit Maine without the hoards of mosquitoes? That would be one time I would prefer to avoid the state bird as much as possible!

Couldn't tell ya Beth but hopefully the more seasoned Maine travellers around here can help. I have not spent all that much time in Maine since I started this lighthouse thing but really should. I loved being there this past weekend.

Well this time of year is pretty bad, I just got back from a 4-day trip to Rangeley Maine fishing, and the gnats, black flies, and mosquitoes were treacherous. The best time is the fall!
