Both appeared active and healthy.

Volunteers Red Moulinier and Charley Kopp work on
painting the outside of the cast iron caisson during a July 11 work
Posted July 20, 2009
Harbor of Refuge caisson gets within
two gallons of a new coat of paint !
It's one of those things we
should have kept a record of...but didn't.
However, now we
know. It takes seven gallons of paint to give the caisson a new
coat. So the coat Harbor of Refuge got during the work trip on
July 11 was shy....maybe a "sleeve.," But the job will
get completed during the next trip on Aug. 8.
Considerable progress was
also made on the inside of the lighthouse. Volunteers continued
paint stripping and preparation for repainting the interior of the
watch room and the living quarters level just below it. These
jobs, too, may be completed on Aug. 8.
