Lovely Sunset

The days are certainly getting shorter, so I have to watch the sunsets online. Still, not too bad...

Happy Birthday Emily!

Running a webcam can be great fun.

This morning I noticed a sign with some balloons attached to a stack of lobster pots--HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMILY. I decided to zoom the webcam onto the sign. Later, as I was getting the newspapers this morning, a car pulled up and a man got out. He said he his name was Bill Maki and today was his daughter's birthday. She's going to school in Spain and watches the webcam frequently to see what' s going on at home. Bill's wife phoned him to tell him that the webcam had been zoomed onto the sign so he decided to stop by and thank us.

Unfortunately it is raining this morning and the sign sort of took a beating. I called my friend Steve Ruberti and asked if he could do something. Always willing to help out, Steve fixed the sign.

Happy Birthday, Emily. directory
