"Are we going far?" came the usual sniveling drivel from the back seat.
"YES!" we replied in unison from the front.
A groan issued forth from Ingrid's rearward regions as The Boy resigned himself to another long drive.
"But will we be getting out to walk?" he asked weakly.
"YES!" we replied, once again in unison.
Our first stop was Prim Point Light near Digby. We disembarked and dabbled about on the rocky shoreline. Not the most beautiful light, but a photo-op and walk-about nonetheless.

After the brief climbing adventure, we resumed our journey making our way to Tiverton and Balancing Rock on Long Island.
|Trail head at Balancing Rock. It was wet. We risked it.|
|While I'm at it, I think I'll brag about The Boy's running abilities, too. Look at him! He's running in a straight line - long strides, without that wee left side wobble!|
Skunk cabbage lines the trail in many places. I put my cap on a leaf to illustrate just how large (and powerfully stinky if crushed) these leaves are. Yeah, yeah, I have a small head.
|From the trail, it's 254 steps down to the shore.|
|Annnnnnd... back the way we came!|
|Brier Island is (obviously) an island. The Boy was delighted to take another ferry ride.|

|First stop, Grand Passage Light.|
|The amazingly beautiful Western Light. I took a bunch of photos here, but most of them had tourists in them. I wish I'd been able to give this the HDR treatment.|
|The Western Light.|
|The Boy wanted to know if anyone was in there. "Knock, knock", he said, "is anybody in there?!"|
|Mr. Buttercup Hat pauses to pick some of the wild irises.|
From the Western Light we made a bee line back to the ferry, through Long Island, on the Tiverton ferry and back home. Poor Truman had to pee so bad that he went twice! Piddling on his way down the hill to the doggie area, right back in for supper and then immediately out again for another enormous pee!
Dogs are definitely coming on the next adventure!
