WE DECORATED OUR LIGHTHOUSE FOR 'CHRISTMAS IN JULY' IN OUR PARK. (7-25-09)

The following collection of pics are all taken in and around our home in Cape Vincent, NY.  We live in the 1000 Islands area and enjoy watching the ships navigate the St. Lawrence River along the seaway in front of our home.

From top down:  Our home at Maloney's Mobile Home Park.  View of the St. Lawrence River from the back of our house;   The 9 ft. replica of Tibbets Point Lighthouse that Dick made in 2003;  Our yard is really green this year.....so far; Our fireplace grill for campfires;  Our Dianthus around the lighthouse, are all starting to bloom again this year;  The gold finches love to visit our feeder in early spring.  Our pair of orioles are back every year and use their feeder quite regularly:)

 My antique barrel with marigolds and our beautiful lilac bushes.       Our daughter Karen and her hubby, Steve have the place next door to us. They come up to the 1000 Islands as often as they can. The dianthus are pretty every year, but only last for a couple of weeks:(
