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”.

There is a winter storm warning in effect for Amherst Island which may make it impossible for Janet and Darlene to get to the station this Monday morning.

If the snow accumulation is as big as predicted, they will stay safe and stay home.

Fingers crossed they can make it in, but if not, never fear! Janet and Darlene will be back the following Monday with this fun-filled episode.

The musical selections for this 'Ice Follies' theme all have to do with winter in Canada, featuring Canadian indie music artists Elliott Brood, Ted 'dr j' Jablonski, Katherine Wheatley, Lynn Harrison McLachlan and more.

The clear, cold sky of the journey home.
.
I got out of my car to walk to the edge of the boat, drawn out from the cold in the hope of catching the last rays of the sun.
.
The way they lit up the island and the mainland shore.
.
The way the horizon softened to pink and gold blur.
.
The way the lake shone, a million diamonds above a deep, cold blue.
.
Not expecting the moon to be there—so bright in the fading sky.
.
Not expecting to gain a quick, welcome, shivery visit with a friend I’d been missing.
.
Not expecting to be caught off guard by the colour of the light hitting the walls of the boat.
.
Not expecting to feel warmer than I had all day, thanks to the stark white of the moon, the glow of good friendship, the beauty of the sun on tired metal.
.
All things I’d have missed.
.
If I hadn’t braved the cold.

Wile E. Coyote did not make an appearance in the Owl Woods Conservation Area yesterday (although there were plenty of tracks in the back 40 topsyfarms - as well as fox deer, turkey, vole, etc tracks).
Thank you for making this warning sign less alarming!😂
