Donna and Bill’s first blog from Seguin Island light! We had to wait
out weather for a couple days in Bath, Maine until we were able to get
out on Ethan‘s lobster boat last Friday, July 27th. Since then we have
had gorgeous weather for our first five day. Of course the island is
always beautiful. It’s been busy but rewarding. We have met a lot of
wonderful people!  To date, we’ve had 145 guests including a visit
from the Coast Guard (to work on the light and fog signal). Friday and
Saturday we had a crash course on lighthouse keeping from Greg and
Mary. We reviewed all the utility systems and the daily routine of the
island. We were treated to a wonderful lobster and corn-on-the-cob
lunch our first Friday. We have spotted 3 whales, two on our first day
! Greg and Mary’s last night on the island (Saturday) we had a BBQ
chicken dinner and they taught us to play a version of domino’s,
called Mexican Train. Greg and Mary departed Sunday morning with the
tour boat and we were on our own. We spent the next few days giving
tours, keeping the quarters squared-away for overnight guests and
mowing. We took the time to enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
Thanks to Greg, Mary, Cyndy and all the other friends who have
assisted us in getting off to a smooth start!
