Winter on the Bruce Peninsula

Bruce Pen Winter

Unbelievably the winter is near over already, it being March again the snow is starting to melt and its finally safe to go out and make some beautiful pictures! Here is a breath-taking view from a small lake, just south of Cabot Head!

And to think of the beautiful autumn we had!

A beautiful storm rolling in over the lake; a great view over the yellow flowers!

Snakes Around the Lighthouse

We have several snakes around the lighthouse: the milk snake, the water snake, several of the garter snakes and the only poisonous snake: the Eastern Massasauga rattle snake.

This is either an Eastern Ribbon or a Garter snake.

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

Established in 1896 to guide ships rounding Cabot Head, this Lightstation has served for decades as an important navigational aid to boaters on the often turbulent Georgian Bay. Today, the Cabot Head Lighstation has been returned to useful services as a historical local landmark, including museum, interpretive plaques, trails, picnic area, gift shop and art gallery.
