Yes, Colin ...

Just off the tip of the North Fork of Long Island ... as you
leave the ferry terminal, Orient Point light is on the left,
Plum Island on the right

If I remember correctly there is a point at which you can see both Plum Island and Orient Point from - I don't mean you can see both at the same time, though.

I mean if you are walking along the shoreline and look in one direction you see Plum Island and if you look in the other you see Orient Point. I imagine if you take the ferry that leaves from there you might be able to get a view that shows both at the same time, though.

It's been a few years since I was at that particular place on Long Island for the Long Island Lighthouse Challenge. Esther and I volunteered at that point one year for the Challenge.

Ode to Plum Island Light
(A Keeper laments)

So very forlorn,
It seems without life,
With the keeper now gone,
And no children and wife.

None there in the daylight hours,
To polish the metal and clean the glass,
To plant the garden and tend the flowers,
And none there now to mow the grass

It looks sadly alone and abandoned,
Now without bright guiding light,
No longer with lens, and with empty lantern,
No longer to aid mariners at night.

What lies in the future,
May it again be bright,
In the years to come,
For Plum Island Light?
