Katie, no island wedding currently planned. We'd love to have it there but it would just be a major pain getting everyone up there and trying to find places for them all to stay. Sarah is Catholic s ...

We can't forget the vandalism caused by the various dirt bikes (the kind with engines) owned by a certain group of boys and other visitors. I don't mind hikers cutting through but when you get a trac ...

The new tower is sitting next to the old tower. You can totally see it when looking west from the state dock.

It would be wonderful if I could perhaps arrange a visit for some point during that week. There is something I may want to ask my girlfriend and she loves lighthouses.
