Maine for the Puffins - June 2008

Went to Maine to see the puffins at Machias Seal Island, plus previously unvisited lighthouses. Traveled from Portland to Campobello Island and back in five days, seeing 17 new lighthouses, a ton of breeding puffins, and some new places and islands I had not visited before during trips with Howard or by myself. It was muggy, buggy and often foggy, but ALWAYS fun, and I think I took some of my best pictures ever!

Not much of a sunset in Stonington because of the storm, but these boats looked really awesome.
