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”.

He is my little bird enthusiast, he knows way more than me when it comes to animals in general. Even though he is not a big fan of hikes he still comes with me which is a blessing. This past weekend at Amherst Island was fun for him to be able to see multiple species of birds. For sure we will be back in winter to see more. #bird #ontario #ontariocanada #nature #kids #kidsofinstagram #son #loveoflife #amherstisland #canada #canonphotography #canon #canoncanada #photography #photooftheday #photographer #naturephotography #explore #instagram #instagood #instadaily #daily #ontarioparks #island #ferry #bestphoto #photo ...

Ok, let’s call it #birdsparadise.
#amherstisland for sure is a #haven for #birds. You can find from the smallest #species to the largest one. We saw a #shortearedowl, few #hawks, #woodpeckers and lots of chickadees. It is on must go list every season. It has a vibe that asks you to come back. Will for sure going back for winter. #ontario #birding #windturbine #birdsofinstagram #explore #exploreontario #princeedwardcounty #canonphotography #canon #canoncanada #canon7d #kfconcept #naturephotography #naturelovers #bird #beautiful #instagram #instagood #love #besafe #enjoy #raw_canada

Well last week I had no idea how rare is to see an #owl, I got lucky and saw one 2 weeks ago and took a very regular picture of him. I did a little bit of #study on #birding and realized that it is actually quite hard to find these #beautiful creatures and even harder to take pictures of them. So I decided to go to #amherstisland today as it is the best spot to see these #beauties. Well I managed to see one in #owlwoods but not at all able to take a #photo not even a bad one. Well it was not even the best time to see them but still managed to see lots of other #birds some #hawks #geese #crows and #seagulls. Any how after spending a nice day at the island which I am going back to for sure in winter, I decided that it was time for some #wine tasting. Well you are in #princeedwardcounty what else comes to mind. Pretty much nothing. Had a nice view and good wine at #bergeronestatewinery and a great drive #home. #ontario #ontariowine #discover #explore #exploreontario #discoveron #winelover #naturelover #instagood #instagram #shotoniphone #iphone12promax #apple ...

Throwback to last thanksgiving when we chilled at a cottage on Amherst Island in Kingston! We had our own private lakeshore, a small bonfire pit, clear sky and sound of small waves that made the experience magical.
