I only had a total of 34 visitors in the Fresnel Lens Building before noon. . . . very low.
It was very cloudy in the morning, but by noon the weather cleared.
My "duty station" - The Fresnel Lens Building
Old Blinky, "the jewel of Fire Island"
These guys showed up later, flying over the beach by the car show - I was imagining they'd been called out to shoot King Kong down off the lighthouse tower.
Shortly after noon another volunteer, Geoffrey, came over to the Lens Building and let me know that he was going to cover for me and that I could go to the car show until 2pm if I wanted. I took him up on it, and went over to the show with Mike on a shuttle bus they'd set up to run between the lighthouse and the parking lot where the show was held.
The show was great. Here's some photos from it. . . .
Andrea, hawking the tee-shirts near our tent at the show
My fellow vol and buddy Dave and his '57 Chevy - reminds me a bit of the '55 Chevy that was my first car.
Our fearless leader and Prez of the Lighthouse Preservation Society, Bob LaRosa, at our tent.
All the vols got tee-shirts (see the stack of them in front of Bob LaRosa in previous photo).
