Join the Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse for a fun evening of tasty treats for the stomach and the ears. Enjoy a smorgasbord of delicious cakes, pies, cookies, brownies and other delights from local restaurants and bakeries.

While you're satisfying your sweet tooth, you'll be entertained by the musical stylings of accordionist extraordinaire Gary Sredzienski. Gary demonstrates the diversity of the accordion with a wide variety of styles encompassing several continents. He's been a cultural ambassador for New Hampshire and has performed at venues such as the Smithsonian, Kennedy Center, and the American and National folk festivals.

There will also be a special performance by the Seacoast Men of Harmony, a popular barbershop-type chorus.

Photo of the Day: Block Island Southeast Lighthouse, Rhode Island

After a long absence, here's a new Photo of the Day. I took this shot of Rhode Island's Block Island South Lighthouse back in 1996, just three years after the lighthouse had been moved back from the edge of the eroding Mohegan Bluffs. I believe the lookout point where I was standing when I took the photo is now closed due to erosion.
