August is the month for visitors at Seguin Island!! Through Aug 20th, we’ve had 771 visitors in our 24 days. Volunteers Greg, Anne, Dave and Mary spent a weekend painting the lighthouse dome.
We had a memorable visit from Bill’s brother and his family from NYC. MITA crew members came for a day of trail maintenance. 8 Kayakers rowed in from the St Michaels Adventure Sports Institute. Small Point Summer School made their annual trip with 18 members . An intern from the Maine Historic Preservation Commission visited Seguin, she will be visiting all of Maine Lighthouses this summer. Members of the Freeport School enjoyed a day at the light even though it was a bit foggy. We’ll have one final blog next week as our days here at Seguin wind down. We continue to enjoy meeting people from all over the world, beautiful sunrises and stunning sunsets. We feel truly privileged to be able to care for this amazing part of Maine maritime history. Never a bad on the island!!
