Boar's Head Lighthouse stands proud and tall on Long Island as the sun sets on another day. This view is from Petite Passage, which is between Digby Neck and Long Island, which is located in the Bay of Fundy on the Digby Neck and Islands Scenic Drive on Highway 217 in Nova Scotia.
This lighthouse is still in use today and still shines its light to tell approaching ships that they are getting close to the cliffs and that danger could be ahead if they don't change their course. This lighthouse was built in 1864 and many people still make the trek out to visit it today.
Some people enjoy visiting lighthouses because they can be quite lonely and tranquil places to go and as they are often right out on cliffs and so close to the sea, it gives people an opportunity to get as close to the sea as possible. A view from a lighthouse is also far reaching and as you can see from the view in this photograph, the horizon stretches so far out in front of you that it truly feels like you are on the edge of the whole world.
