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”.

Killing time while waiting for the ferry and these two show up in a distant field. Of course the sun had already set, but still happy to see the foxes thriving on Amherst Island. :)⁠

Beautiful Moonrise in Amherst Island, with a Snowy Owl and Geese. ⁠
Couldn't quite close enough to the Snowy for an iconic "Snowy with Full Moon" shot, but I think this one will do. 🙂 ⁠

Happy Valentine's Day! I don't know if these horses are boys or girls, but one thing we can all relate to: they sure love their food!⁠
