Welcome to Amherst Island

Amherst Island is located in Lake Ontario west of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The island is part of Loyalist Township in Lennox and Addington County. Amherst Island is located about 3 kilometres (2 mi) offshore from the rest of Loyalist Township and access to the island is by way of the Frontenac II ferry from Millhaven.

The main population centre on the island is the village of Stella, which is the where the ferry lands on the island side. Harrowsmith Country Life  declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.

I’ve been admiring this mug at the weaselandeasel for 3 or 4 months and finally picked it up yesterday at the annual Christmas Shopping on Amherst Island event. Mayo Underwood, you are talented and hilarious. 😂❤️😘 #weaselandeasel #mayosclaypen #amherstisland ...

While out looking for birds on Amherst Island last week with good friends we came across this cool looking farm... It's a lot easier photographing barns than birds as they stay in one place until you get your shot.....lol
