Oh no! so sad, didn't anyone want it?

I hate that bland smug green building, it looks so ... so ... superior and aloof! Grr! Great shot!

Nawitka, it's been so nice to find out everyone wanted it!

I thought my fascination with the quirky old lobster pound and Lobstavane was my own little thing, but when it burned down it turned out just about everyone loved it. It even was the subject of a lot of conversations at family events over that Memorial Day week-end. And partly because of the huge outpouring of support, rather than selling out to a big developer, the family that owns it is planning on rebuilding on the site, though it could never be as authentic as the original. Intentional new signage with letters made from 2x4s would be a bit too hokie. (the photos to either side of this on the page are of the lobster weather vane, and of the end of the fire. And other photos from last year were among the first ones 'I' uploaded. )

But this view is funny, isn't it? makes it look like the little old building just gave up and collapsed in the face of the big bland Modern building.

Hi Bitsy! :) Thanks for the update ... I though the building had been pushed down to make way for more bland office buildings (usually I like green buildings, BTW. This is probably pretty nice, in any other context). I didn't realize there was a fire. It's just the lighthouse thing that I thought should be worth saving.
