We knew day 2 would be cold and rainy, so we planned indoor stuff. The morning was dry so we went lighthouse hunting. Oak Island is the nations second newest, finished in the 1950s. We also wanted to visit Bald Island Lighthouse, but the private ferry was over $25 per person, plus $8 to park, plus an admission… so well over $100 to see a lighthouse = nope. After a state ferry ride over to Southport and back, we visit teh NC aquarium.
A quick test of Monday’s Lunar eclipse – Not bad for a 1989 Tamron 300mm f2.8 with 1.4x convertor.

Sadly, I think we are going to be clouded out Monday (Tuesday) at 3am
A story of bosses. My boss sets up a light for a group photo of the staff under his boss who is retiring this summer. The photo was going to be a surprise for her except…. she saw my truck in the parking lot and came in just to say hello to me…. That is just the kind of person she is… I am glad I got to work with her and remember there are some just nice people out there…. PS the surprise was ruined…. who would have thought I had to hide my truck ; )
