Pretty Port Medway

Had to take a break from blogging while I was back in Montreal & Ottawa for a 10 days. It was great spending time at the cottage, but it’s also great to be back by the ocean :-)

On Sunday, I drove down to Port Medway for the Lighthouse Awareness Art & Craft Show. The show takes in Port Medway for a few days, and then moves to Port Mouton for a few days. The show raises funds in support of the Medway Head Lighthouse and the Spectacle Island Lighthouse. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it!), the paintings that I liked the best were either already sold or out of my price range. But I did pick up a 2016 calendar :-)

After checking out the show, I did some exploring, starting with the village of Port Medway. Wish I’d brought my Nikon with me, but my iPhone did a pretty decent job :-)

Then I headed out to the Medway Head Lighthouse, where it suddenly got foggy and very mosquito-ey…

There was a great little spot by the water to take pictures, so I took a lot!

The rocks here are so smooth – they make me think of hippos for some reason :-)
