|The Daily Bucket is a place where we post and exchange our observations about what is happening in the natural world in our neighborhood. Each note about the bugs, buds, and birds around us is a record that we can refer to in the future as we try to understand the patterns of nature that are quietly unwinding around us.|

Turning around and looking back at the keeper's house one see this perfect and iconic building at the end of the walkway.
From this vantage point, turn the the left to catch a view of some boats in the Port Clyde harbor.
The next day we went to the Owls Head lighthouse maintained by the Coast Guard. We were able to enter and climb up to see the interior.
It housed a classic Fresnel lensed light. For a sense of scale, this image is about 3 feet tall.
Later that day we headed out to the breakwater at Rockland harbor. This structure provides calmed waters for the harbor. The huge granite stones were fun to walk along.
Just before venturing out on the breakwater, we saw this lovely rose.
We had two lovely days outdoors before the rains came and kept us inside. But, we took full advantage of the indoor time and caught up on visits with our hosts. We had a great time.
