Ferryland Head Lighthouse, Ferryland, Newfoundland

The Ferryland Head Lighthouse sits at the end of a peninsula that juts out into the ocean to the Southeast of the village of Ferryland on the Avalon Peninsula South of St. John's, Newfoundland. The lighthouse is a cylindrical cast iron tower painted red and there is an adjacent keeper's house. The light is active, however the keeper's house has been converted into a restaurant that serves "lighthouse picnics" to those who make the 2.5 km hike from the end of the road to the lighthouse. At the start of the peninsula is the Avalon Colony site which is an active archaeological dig. The light was first established in 1871. Unfortunately the day we made the trek, the fog kept swirling which affected the quality of my photos. Photos taken in July 2014
