Whenever I am on the Islands, I seem to end up at the pier eventually. The pier is in the center of the park lands and juts out further south from the city. Nothing to see but lake horizon to the south and if the air is clear, Hamilton to the west. In the summer it can be a busy place, both lake and pier. This day did not disappoint.
Of course we couldn't miss the Lake Light. An old lighthouse on the Islands that is no longer in use. While we were there we saw a small group of people being taken on a private tour. Apparently if you catch the guardian of the light house, and his schedule is free, he might take you inside. Or so I have been told.
