I've done that. My wife and daughter were on a Boston-to-Montreal cruise and stopped in Bar Harbor, Maine. A restaurant there had a webcam watching the street scene, and I called them when they got off the boat, and directed them where to go and look. It was kind of neat (didn't quite make up for me being left behind, but still . . .)I wonder if I could get someone to stand within view of the camera and I could call them on the phone, and ask them to wave into the camera, and see it?! That would be weird, because most people don't know the camera is watching them.
