100 Years of Great Duck: the island lighthouse turns 100

The lighthouse at Great Duck Island turned 100 and we're off to give her a birthday gift. This is also the inaugural trip for Firefly, our 1982 33' Mirage sloop. Along the way we stop by the Burnt Harbour shipwreck, get nailed by a storm with a tornado watch, run into autopilot issues, run into diesel issues, find a rainbow, enjoy a campfire, you know, the usual stuff. Shot on Lake Huron and her North Channel, this is Ontario's cruising grounds at their finest.

Looked like a fun trip. Holy poison ivy though!

Nice job on the shipwreck. Was that a Goptro in a waterproof case?

Yes sir a Hero 4 Silver. It's not bad but we had to replace it once under warranty. It has the LCD screen which makes framing amazing but it hurts the battery life.
