great series so far,  Debs!  Liked the bridge that swung open  to let the boats pass.

This is the third lighthouse, which was called Burnt Island Lighthouse.

Thanks, Chuck!  It was an interesting concept, that bridge.

We passed this sailboat as we were coming back to the dock.

After the harbor cruise ended, we had the rest of Monday afternoon free to eat lunch, shop, rest, and then have dinner on our own in town.  I ate lunch with my friends, then went shopping for a little while with them, but ended up buying six paperback books at the bookstore.  The bag was heavy, so I finally walked over the footbridge to the hotel to put the books away.  I went out later by myself to make a round trip to town over the footbridge, taking pictures, and then met the others before dinner for another walk back to town via the footbridge.  Almost a mile on that footbridge that day!

Right after lunch, we came upon this moose in town.

Thanks, Sonja!

I'll post some more later, but have to take a break to eat something first.

We didn't eat lunch at the Chowder House, but I heard that some people in our bus tour group did.

One of the pictures from my afternoon stroll across the footbridge.

The colored objects are buoys used to mark lobster traps in the water.  We would learn later that each lobster fisherman has his (or her, but they are almost all men) own color scheme, which is known by the Coast Guard and can be checked.  This is to prevent other fishermen from traps out of the water that don't belong to them.

Although no one was around to give an explanation, these chairs look like they are made from lobster-trap wire.
