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”.

Heard a big kerfuffle outside the basement window where I was studying and found a flock (murmuration) of starlings feeding (and promptly frightened them all). #amherstisland ...

Since day one, which was painting this old rusted piece of garbage, I have loved this bicycle. Each old abandoned item out in the world has at one point served a purpose.

This bike once was shiny and new.

It brought joy to the ones who rode it out in the world.
It got dirty. It got banged up. It got rusty.

It got trashed.

I saw the beauty in this trash and thought of the stories behind it all.
I gave it new life. Painted in watermelon pink. Basket on the handles. Flowers.
It now leans on the beautiful old barn topsyfarms and receives love and admiration every day by the visitors.

My heart if full. .

Another snowy owl picture! At least I’m sure I see one? It can be pretty challenging looking for a white owl in a snowstorm, so my eye looked for other images instead. .
