West Quoddy Head Lighthouse

After our five days in Canada, we headed across the bridge to Lubec, Maine and then back home. In Lubec we stopped to see West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, my favorite lighthouse of the trip and one I've wanted to visit for a long time. And I finally got some beautiful blue skies that day!

I was standing as far back against a fence as I could go on this side and couldn't fit the very top of the lighthouse in my frame with my 24-70mm lens at 24mm. I shouldn't have been too lazy to go back to the car for my fisheye; I bet that would have been cool.

I think this concludes my vacation photos. It took more days to post my photos than the whole trip took.
Today was Delaney's first day of 8th grade. I need to go back and recrop this since I chopped off her hands:

I like this lighthouse, too--the horizontal stripes always remind me of witches' stockings. Love the red roofs to match the lighthouse stripes. And yea! for the blue skies!! Delaney sure is a cute cute girl, Becky.

I am such a sucker for lighthouses, especially striped ones. I wish out lighthouses were as cool as east coast ones.

Delaney is looking mighty gorwn up here, hope she had a fabulous first day of school!

PS, your comment on my blog made me LOL.

The lighthouse is beautiful, but those photos are over-shadowed by how beautiful Delaney is! She's really grown up a lot over the last several months!

I love that lighthouse. Red & white stripes are perfect, though it doesn't make it look any thinner. ;)

Delaney only in 8th? Uh oh, you are going to be in trouble with that beauty. ;)
