September Memories 2

Last of my vacation pics that I will post - I know you all have better things to do then listen to me go on (and on and on) about how wonderful it was....but I need to look at these just to remind me I really was there just 2 weeks ago! We are a 15 min drive from the northern tip...
The week I was on my own I took the time to visit one of the many local Lighthouses - this one is at Big Tub Harbour and is looking pretty worse for wear. It was built in the late 1800's. One year we actually stayed at the Lighthouse Keepers house around the corner (in the days before we had a permanent place on the Bruce).
While there one of the many tourist boat rides went by - these folks are off to cruise around the islands

Looking out and...
Just up the road from us is access to the National Park - it is not a beach that gets visited much as it is too rocky to swim at - but it gives you an idea of the terrain on the Lake Huron side of the Penninsula
More visitors - at one point the chipmunk was chasing this young rabbit around my sceptic bed - not happy to share any food source. I also saw a grey heron and loons from my deck and we often heard coyotes at night (we never let Miss Gwendoline off her lead in fear she would become someone's lunch, LOL)
A creative way to use an old boat - the previous owners who lived there full time kept it full of flowers
One last look at the village harbour before I left - will look totally different when we go back in November!
Enjoy, Jewels
