Through the Lighthouse Window

I recently took a drive up the Bruce Peninsula. At the end of a very long one-lane gravel road is a beautiful old lighthouse. Decommissioned many years ago it is now preserved as a museum. It was built as a house for the light-keeper, with the light tower added to the top of the little white house. Not having a boat, I was having difficulty getting a good photo of the building. So I decided to present it a different way – as a series of photos of the windows, looking through from the inside.

Do you ever say to yourself “I must come back here sometime when I have more time…” when you see something interesting? For me this usually means a missed opportunity that never comes again – the weather is not the same, the building is demolished, etc. But this time was different. I was traveling last week and found myself near one of these “I must come back” places. I stopped in. As it happened, the property owner was in and we started talking… which led to a very gracious offer of a tour of the place. With my camera in tow for much of it. Initially I stopped by because of the beauty of the buildings and the setting, but I will show those another time. This post is about the inside – what I think of as a Toy Store for boys.
