While I am honored to have the second tropical storm of the season named after me it looks like a “toad soaker” for the state of Maine today. It is a lucky day to be at the dock. We have lots of projects to take care of aboard. Kids are back to school for a couple days this week and we have a million things to do in the office.

The 4 day lighthouse cruise we just returned from left us all pooped. Great guests who have give us so much joy leave us wanting more. But joy is hard work sometimes so we are appreciating a day to recover our juices. We will be going out again on Wednesday on another lighthouse cruise. If you have never been aboard with Ted and Jo Panayatoff, they are wonderful folks and Ted’s knowledge of lighthouses is just amazing. He is a good storyteller and brings life to the history of the Maine coast lights.

The photo of seals on the ledge by Jen is just one of many highlights of this cruise. The seal pups are abundant.

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
