In this photo taken from Star Island in Rye, N.H. June 24, 2013 a seagull is perched of a rock pile overlooking the lighthouse on the Isles of Shoals, White Island. Since the English explorer Captain John Smith spotted the islands just under 400 years ago, the cluster of nine small islands, five in Maine, four in New Hampshire, have evolved from rough-and-tumble 17th century fishing outpost to posh Victorian-era vacation destination.
