As a Sailor, I have rarely been close enough to a lighthouse to read the Canadian Coast Guard sign that identifies them as a "Lightstation". I suppose this is more accurate as most are unoccupied and if there is a house associated, its probably been sold or rented and has nothing to do with the actual operation or maintenance. And, for that matter, if we're going to be all sticky about describing the contemporary function, should it not be the 14.48 Kilometre Point Lightstation?
Simcoe Island is much smaller than Wolfe Island but large enough to be connected with a year round ferry operated by the Township. I know it from the water, having sailed the channel between the two islands and also passing the lighthouse on the west end on the Kingston side.
Technically it marks the division of Lake Ontario from the St. Lawrence River, and to a sailer often the lee of the islands from the waves across the long fetch of Lake Ontario. This last week there have been clouds of midges - tiny flies - that are mildly annoying especially if you breath some in, but don't bite. The smudges on the page are a couple of those that gave thier lives for art.
