Boats and a Lighthouse

Thunder and rain in the morning. Once it began to let up we went to visit the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, NY.  They have a huge collection of boats in several buildings. It was more interesting than I expected it to be.

Then, on our way out to see a lighthouse we stopped at a park at Cape Vincent. Signs indicate how this area of the 1000 Islands was significant during the Revolutionary War as well as the War of 1812.

At the end of the road we finally made it to the restored Tibbetts Point Lighthouse. We were not allowed to climb up to the top of the lighthouse here, but there was some information inside the foghorn building that explained about the history of the place. There was also another building with a visitor center and gift shop.

It’s been pretty hot and very humid all day. More storms rolled in and it rained pretty good for a while.

  • Admission to Lighthouse:  free
