Archive for the ‘Lighthouse caretaking’ Category

I am preparing a talk about our lighthouse caretaking adventures and have been poring over photos, videos and sound clips. This is what we heard all day and night in Alaska.  We had our own meditation instructors swimming around the island.  If only I had remembered this my first few times in the pool. I […]

Here’s YOUR chance. Friends of Seguin Island Lighthouse Station is looking for caretakers from Memorial Day to Labor Day 2014. Sadly, actually for happy reasons, I’m busy. Here’s the link to information. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. Good luck. On another note, I attended Stitches East Market today. Let’s just say I’m not […]

I finally had a chance to look at some of the photos on my camera – not my iPhone, which was the only electronic device I had on the island.  It’s easy to post from but I keep my words brief. We were up in the lantern room at Seguin on a foggy day and […]

I harvested wild rose hips to make tea and jelly when I get home. The garden offers more than I thought at first glance. All the chive plants were moved into […]

Scoured sky

Yesterday’s gale scrubbed the sky. Today was sunny, windy and a perfect temperature. We hauled the various commemorative benches to the whistle house, finished packing up the gift shop, after numerous purchases by me, and did my final weed whacking. That left plenty of time for photo ops and knitting. I’m on my third climbing […]

Blowin’ Stink

What’s a lighthouse without a gale and a little fog thrown in. The new fog horn has been on since 3:00 am. The wind has whipped things around outside and surf is crashing. We couldn’t leave if we wanted to. What could be better? We even have the latest Stephen King book, Doctor Sleep, the […]
