Took the ferry to Sheffield Island Lighthouse yesterday. The weather was stunning, the young man giving the tour was very informative and the Captain, Mike, very experienced in these waters. Clearly, traversing these islands is very confusing and dangerous if you have not been educated about boating safety and the tides and rock formations surrounding Norwalk's Islands. He and other staff members have also worked so hard to clean up after the damage Sandy caused.
We had an interesting tour of the lighthouse although the tower currently closed for repairs. There was time for a picnic lunch and a walk along the beach and trails. So beautiful and peaceful!!
We were warned to stay clear of remains of old mansion on one end of island as wooded area tick-infested and treacherous. Thirty min. ferry ride each way with about 2 hours on Island. Worth every second!!!
