Our Top Instragram Posts from 2014

Yesterday we shared our most popular Facebook posts from 2014, and today we’re delivering with our most popular Instagram photos. As you probably already know, Star Island is perfect for picture taking. In fact, there are three summer conferences dedicated to photography. We hope you enjoy this look back at 2014, and if you’re so inclined, go ahead and register for your 2015 stay on Star.

Watch Your Step

During the spring of 2014, our open-up staff, volunteers and contractors focused on a number of projects including the reconstruction of the front porch in front of the Gosport building. This reconstruction is a continuation of similar porch work completed in 2013 to the center section.

Take Your Seat

These adirondack chairs, constructed and donated by the Timberland Company, have been a huge hit for the last couple of summers. Located right on the rock line overlooking Gosport Harbor, and just out of the way of the volleyball area, these chairs are a perfect place to sit and read, or just enjoy the view.

Tall Ships Come and Tall Ships Go

One special day this summer we saw both the tallships Amistad and Mystic dock at Star Island. This pictures shows Mystic departing the island.

Two Rainbows, Please

There’s always a touch of magic when you’re on Star Island, and seeing a double rainbow is nothing short of mesmerizing.

Friday Night Lights

With light pollution so low on Star Island, making it a perfect place to stargaze, it’s always fascinating to see the electric front porch lights stand out right after the sun sets.

Come Sail Away

The fifth annual Gosport Regatta sailed into Gosport Harbor in late September. This picture captures many of those sailboats fighting for the win.

Pier Pressure

Two huge projects consumed our autumn. First, the solar project installation; second, the resurfacing of the pier. The railings will be replaced in early spring.
