On July 22, Laura and Robert were pleased to serve as tour guides for over 30 members of the Back Yard Yacht Builders Association (BYYB) at Point Lookout Lighthouse.   The BYYB is a non-commercial association of amateur boat-builder enthusiasts, who gathered at Point Lookout.  We began the tour at the front steps, where Laura and Robert provided an overview of the history of the lighthouse.   Laura gave the crowd chills by telling of her experiences in the lighthouse.  After answering a few questions, we split into two groups, Laura taking her group into the north side of the lighthouse where she used to live, and Robert taking the other group into the south side.   Laura and Robert exchanged groups so that everyone could see both sides of the lighthouse, and learn of the history and eerie happenings experienced throughout this majestic lighthouse.

Prior to the lighthouse tour, Scott graciously offered to take Laura and Robert sailing on his custom built sailboat on Lake Canoy.  It was a windy day, with threatening skies, but we enjoyed the view from the water.

Laura and Robert would like to thank the BYYB for their hospitality and the most enjoyable sailboat ride!
