The Lady’s Musings…

I had a great time tonight with the folks who turned out for “Haunted Lighthouses of Maine”! They were a great group and had some interesting ghost stories to share – I always love to hear other’s stories!

Lighthouse lore is so fascinating – I learned a lot doing research for this, and there’s yet more to learn. Running into Abbie Burgess (“Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie”) again was fun. I sometimes think the wives and children of lighthouse keepers were just as stalwart as the men!

Two of the lighthouses we talked about tonight were Abenaki names, Matinicus and Seguin. It’s amazing to think about the Native Americans venturing that far out to sea in their canoes!

Next week I get to take some school children on walks; always rewarding and fun for me! I hope it doesn’t pour like it did today! I always hope to instill a love of history in the kids. History was something that was always part of my growing up, and obviously stuck with me!

Take a minute to think of your history… and enjoy!
