Light Station Ownership; Site for Ship Photos; Living History Troubles

I was in Sequim and Port Angeles over the weekend and saw a brief news story on the New Dungeness Light Station [link] in a Fall 2005 tourism guide published by the Port Townsend Leader. The station's ownership is in doubt, due to the Coast Guard's plans to surplus the station. The uncertainty has led the board of the NDLS Association to delay needed upgrades until the ownership issue is resolved.

Dwayne Clark of the blog "Boating Safety and Law News" [link] sent this URL for finding ship and boat photos. Go to the TrekEarth website and search on the terms "ship" and boat. Thanks, Dwayne!

An article in the Washington Post laments the fading attendance at living history museums and parks. Much of maritime history is taught this way, so all maritime heritage supporters should take note. Here's the story: "Living History Museums Struggle to Draw Visitors" [link]
