We had allocated
a whole day to be on Swans Island. (you have to make ferry
reservations). We had the reservations for months, but because
I had not read the very smallest print on the confirmation, the lady
in the office at the ferry landing was not going to let us on.
(despite the fact that we were there over an hour early and the
ferry wasn't full). However, the ferry captain prevailed on
her to let us on. We went straight to the lighthouse, which
was obscured by fog. We wandered around a bit, then went to
explore more of the island, hoping the sun would come out. It
did. On every part of the island except the lighthouse
area. We visited the lighthouse three times and finally gave
up on sunshine, but we have some fine foggy shots. If that is
the way it always is, they really needed a lighthouse on that spot
in the early days.
