Damn yes. The Swallowtail lighthouse is the storybook lighthouse in my opinion. On one visit to Grand Manan the lad and I bought an early 20th century photo of it with a schooner in the foreground.

Last we went, we lost count of the number of porpoises we saw riding the bow wave of the ferry. No whales that time, though.

And another Bok. "Bay of Fundy".

Like Stan Rogers, a great voice and songs of the sea.

Staying with the theme, Stan Rogers.
