A Run to the Lighthouse

I love trail running.

My mom loves lighthouses.

So, when I discovered a 3 kilometer nature trail that ends at a lighthouse, I just knew I had to lace up my shoes, strap my camera to my wrist, and hit the trail.

It’s time for another Photographic Tour! 

Today we are exploring George Nicholson Trail in St. Catherines, Ontario.

The trail starts at Port Weller East Park

and runs alongside the water, curving here and there.

It’s nice to see that there are areas like this to sit and take a rest and enjoy the view.

This sign, made me stick to the stone trail.  Poison Ivy is definitely not something I want to deal with.

I love waterfront trails like this . . . but this is the first one I have ever done that had a lighthouse waiting for me at the end.

I couldn’t wait to see what it looked like. 

This is what it looks like from the beach I parked my car at.

It was a hot day but I couldn’t cool down with a swim.

I bet this swim advisory was only temporary. There has been some pretty severe weather recently and that probably stirred up a few things.

You can see the red and white lighthouse at the edge of the water in the distance.

And here is what it looks like close up.

It might not be the most gorgeous lighthouse in the world, but it is in my corner of it, and it was a nice journey getting here.
