Stopped by the lighthouse to take some photos using my fisheye lens this past Saturday and wanted to pass along this photo of my dog Finn. He was having a very fun day.
Happy 4th of July! Just wanted to share a picture I took the other night at the fireworks. 😊
John O'Neill's cannon - the morning of November 28, 2017. I found myself wondering if this morning may have been similar to the sunrise of 3 May, 1813, when British forces attacked Havre de Grace at dawn. John O'Neill defended the town from this location, and later became the first keeper of Concord Point Lighthouse, which was built on the same point.
