Maine Lighthouse Day is this Saturday, September 10, 2016 - We are still open and welcoming visitors to the island. If you have not yet visited us this summer, there is still time and what a better day than Maine Lighthouse Day. Come see us!
Final Post and Happy Labor Day Hermine - Monday September 5, 2016 The first sound we heard when we woke up this morning was big loud waves crashing on Cobblestone Beach at the shoreline in front of the house.  The forecast called for 6 to 9 foot waves and while they didn’t look that big (yet), they were still the biggest waves we’ve […]
Cyndy’s Surprise Visit - Sunday September 4, 2016 When I went out early this morning to raise the flag, our overnight guests Jennifer & Bill were already on the front porch eating their breakfast.  They told me they were up early to watch the sunrise and absolutely loved the beautiful views everywhere on the island.  They wanted to know […]
Full House -   Saturday September 3, 2016 The day started with raising the flag including the Lighthouse burgee beneath it which we fly on holiday weekends.  It was a little cloudy early with the temperature below 60 and a light wind out of the north that later died out before picking up later in the day to south/southwest.  […]
Happy Start of Labor Day Weekend! - Friday September 2, 2016 Guest blog post, Patty here at the keyboard.

Early, Short Day Off-Island… - Thursday September 1, 2016 Our day off-island was postponed from Wednesday to today and it was an earlier a wake-up call than usual for going to the mainland.  We were up in the dark at 4:30am – strange to think that at one point sunrise was right around the time we got up but we […]
No Go Wednesday - Wednesday August 31, 2016 Instead of our usual 5:30am Wednesday morning alarm, we slept in until a little after 7 since we weren’t going off-island today.  The forecast called for bad seas but when we looked from our vantage point at 140 feet above sea level, they didn’t seem as bad as we had expected.  […]
Hot Suppa - Tuesday August 30, 2016 The weather today was much nicer than it was yesterday, especially in the afternoon when the wind kicked up.  Early in the morning, it was cool with a light breeze, some increasing clouds, and calm seas. We were back to our usual fruit, yogurt, and granola for breakfast.  Good for us […]
