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”.

Long-eared Owl .
I wasn’t able to get a clean shot of this bird, so I decided to embrace the snowy branches and create a more painterly composition. .

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. .

A road trip to Ottawa, Loughborough Lake, Amherst Island & Owl Woods Sanctuary. A very short, but great visit with kyladactyl30 , so much fun, so much hiking, so many deer, so many birds, so many pictures. But I accidentally formatted my memory card, so all I have to show for the entire trip is this iPhone video of the wavy shore of Amherst Island. And the amazing memories...
