Seeing the Light
Quirpon Island, NL; Cape Anguille, NL; Cape d'Or, NS. In Ferryland, just an hour or so south of St. John's, NL, Lighthouse Picnics provides picnic lunches on a coastal headland accessed by a scenic walking trail; icebergs or whales might just add to the ambiance here in June and early July! Lighthouses are a fitting symbol of Atlantic Canada, since so much of our history is closely linked with the sea and seafaring. Depicted here are the lighthouses at Cape Bonavista, Newfoundland (top), Point Amour, Labrador (middle) and Ferryland Head, Newfoundland (below).
