|Lighthouse in pretty sad condition|
What we found was not very pretty. We had stopped in at the Rangers Office on the way in, as the light is now within the Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area. The Rangers there told Ron and I that the building was condemmed and was in really poor shape, and boy were they right!

What was surprising is that the light is protected as a historical building, yet nobody seems to care, or even do basic maintenance on it.
Anyway, we could activate the lighthouse for a few hours, but no overnights are permitted within the wild life refuge. So we have another possibility for next August.
The drive home to Kingston was great, and the scenary just fantastic. We stopped at the Black River Cheese Factory and stocked up with some great cheeses, and we also stopped at the Mariners Park Museum to have a look around. Well worth the visits if you find yourselves in deepest, darkest Prince Edward County.
