This was one of those days that I initially regretted "traveling light." The only camera I had brought along on this vacation was my tiny Pentax Optio s5i, and as our ferry out to Vinalhaven, Maine motored past the beautiful Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse, I thought I'd never be happy with the photo. I was wrong! That little-camera-that-you-can-fit-in-an-Altoids tin often surprises me, and this pic has been my computer wallpaper for about 2 years!
