|Drying out after the rain. So nice to see the sun.|
On the road again Saturday Oct. 2. Started the day in a relaxing manner, no big rush to going anywhere. Woke up to beautiful sunshine. Hung a clothesline so we could air dry our towels (what a beautiful breeze) and pants from yesterday. When we got off the bus yesterday we thought we could do the 10 minute walk to the lighthouse from our campsite. Didn't get far and it started to drizzle...then downpour. Quick trip back to our nice dry RV. It rained most of the night and the power went out for a while. But we were just fine in our RV.
About 10:45 am we went to the lighthouse. It was impressive. But not like the old days, no lighthouse keepers now, all automatic. After the lighthouse went for a lobster lunch, Phil had a 2 pound lobster while Ellie had a 1 pound lobster. They were delicious. We both had soft shell lobsters rather than hard shell.

There is also a memorial in tribute to the wives of the fishermen.
