Pelee Island

Pelee Island is a tiny Canadian island in Lake Erie.  We traveled there a few summers ago for a wedding at the winery.

We stayed in one of the cottages and rented bikes to tour around the island. I think we saw more people on bicycles than in cars.

On an overcast day, we visited the old lighthouse and saw a several waterspouts out on the lake.

It's a great destination for a quiet summer weekend getaway.  Hit the winery, rent some bikes, and enjoy some awesome stargazing at night.   Here's my attempt at capturing the bright July sunshine and the fresh lake breezes.
