Bell Island Light

This lonely lighthouse is situated on the eastern point of Bell Island . On a clear day, you can see all the way to Baccalieu Island and right across to the northern shore of Conception Bay. It is a very wild and beautiful place; the fields over-looking the cliffs are covered in purple irises in the springtime and harebells and daisies in the summer. Whales and dolphins play in the cool waters below during July and August.

I can hardly imagine living on a barren spur of land like that with ocean all around. In most directions, the view would be sky and water. It is beautiful, but it seems very lonely to me.
