Good morning, spring is less than a month away. In May of 2006 we visited our daughter when she was running in the Burlington Marathon in Vermont. This photo was taken of the Breakwater North Light in Lake Champlain.

“Sail on; Sail on ye stately ships.

And with your floating bridge and ocean span.

Be mine to guard this light from all eclipse.

Be yours to bring man near unto man.”

  • Longfellow
