Boblo Island Lighthouse

    I went to Boblo Island this afternoon...which is a Private Island off of the town of Amherstburg, Ontario. Boblo Island is an old Amusement Park turned Private residential community. We were fortunate to get over on the ferry and get into some of the old buildings left on the south side of the island. This stone lighthouse built in 1836 on the southern tip of the island marks the historical beginning of the Detroit River navigation channel for ships traveling upriver from Lake Erie.

      Lovely ~ love the subtle tones and the way the light is catching the texture of the lighthouse - well captured!

      So ... you pretended to know some residents to gain access?? I'd love to have been able to get inside that and look out from the top :)
