Some lighthouses from Canada.
With the exception of the Brockton Point Lighthouse in Vancouver, British Columbia, these are on the shores of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay in Ontario.

Big Tub Tobermory Ontario Canada

Tobermory is at the northern end of Bruce Peninsular which separates Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.

It is the southern terminus of the Chi-Cheemaun, a RORO ferry which links the Bruce Peninsula with South Baymouth on Manotoulin Island during the ice free months of the year.

Tobermory's harbour is in two parts; Little Tub which runs north - south, and at it's northern end, Big Tub which runs west - east.

Big Tub has a couple of shipwrecks easily seen in the crystal clear water.

Kilbear Point Parry Sound
Kilbear Point, Parry Sound

There are many islands in Parry Sound, Ontario.  Being part of the Canadian Shield the islands are separated by often narrow channels and deceptive areas of shallow water.

Accordingly the channels are well marked and several lighthouses of differing designs mark hazardous points.

Lions Head
Lions Head, Bruce Peninsula

This is  a typical lighthouse both on the Great Lakes and other navigable lakes and rivers in Ontario.
