Photo from Maine Open Lighthouse Day, Sept. 18, 2010

My friend William Marshall took this photo of me speaking at the Maine Open Lighthouse Day event at Portland Head Light this past Saturday.

Behind me, left to right: Mayor Tom Coward of South Portland, Maine; Rear Admiral Daniel A. Neptun, commander of the First Coast Guard District; Captain James B. McPherson, commanding officer of Coast Guard Sector Northern New England.

It was an honor to be part of this event and to be in such distinguished company. It was a great day for lighthouses. Thanks to William for the pic!
