Midcoast Lens: Ice lanterns
A Rockport couple who wish to remain anonymous have been placing "ice lanterns" around Camden and Rockport in recent weeks. Dubbed by friends as "The Ice Lantern Fairy," the woman has been making the lanterns on her own time, said helper Amy Root.
Root said the couple began placing ice lanterns in Rockport and Camden and asked Root to assist in spreading the lights farther beyond the borders of the two towns.
"She's making it her part-time job," Root said.
Currently, there are more than a dozen ice lanterns located in the three towns, including the median in Rockport village by the opera house, Hope General Store and elementary school, French and Brawn in Camden and several private residences, Root said.
