|Very Historical Lighthouse|
The Burnt Island Light is distinct from many lighthouses in that it was not built to warn ships, but rather to attract them. As such, it has an interesting design. Most of its square light room has red-painted windows, save for two white slits. These slits create two beams which correspond with newer lighthouses on Ram Island and The Cuckolds, creating white strips in the water that mark the channels into the harbor around Squirrel Island in the center.

With our feet back on dry land, and our 12 days in Boothbay Harbor up, we packed up the RV and drove north for Trenton and Acadia National Park. I'm sure we'll have some great photos and stories of our experiences there to share with you, although at the moment, it seems like rain will be a heavily featured theme. Until next time, Bon Voyage!
