Good morning, Tenpound Island Light.

This is the Tenpound Island Light in the morning light just as the sun breaks over East Gloucester. The promise of another sunny day.

Steve, do you ever have a bad sunrise or sunset? Seriously.

Such beautiful light!

Hi Sharon,
I know it is hard to believe, but sometimes we do have bland sunrises and sunsets. We happen to be lucky to live in an area where we are blessed. So I'm making hay while the sun shines.
Hi Mary, Thanks for taking the time to have a look!

All,
I'm delighted to have such a favorable response to this picture.

Welcome to Chatelaine and Lusia. Thanks for stopping by.

To answer the $65 question, there are a few theories on how Tenpound Island got its name:
1) It was purchased for ten pounds of silver. (Highly unlikely, per local historians.)
2) It was the location of 10 sheep pounds.
3) It was once the location of ten pound guns.

As unlikely as it seems, I like the first one Steve. I can imagine pirates with eye-patches barganing over it!! LOL!!
