Sunshine and a mysterious fog bank made for misinterpreted temperatures at the Rockland Breakwater May 12. What looked to be nearly summer weather turned cooler as the chilly air moved through the area.

Have a Samoset Time Share week, and been going there each September for about thirty years now. I try and walk the breakwater every day, and visit the lighthouse whenever it's open on the weekend. Would love to have two weeks back to back. It has always been a perfect vacation, and the photos certainly bring back many fond memories.
