On May 22nd, is National Maritime Day! Because it's on a Sunday, we're celebrating early!
A few shots of Salem and Derby Wharf.
The Friendship of Salem is a 171-foot replica of a 1797 East Indiaman. It was built in 2000 in the Scarano Brothers Shipyard in Albany, New York.
The Light Station was originally built in 1871 and used an oil lamp shining through a Fresnel lens. For many years, Derby Wharf Light had one of only 17 sixth-order Fresnel lenses in the United States. Today, the light is solar powered, and the light is a red flash every six seconds.

The opening shot on the main page is always taken during the previous month.
