We took a road trip today with no real destination.
Stony Point Lighthouse
One of twenty such structures running from just south of Niagara Falls north to Ogdensburg, NY at the northern end of the Thousand Islands. Of those thirteen, including Stony Point, are currently privately-owned and not available to tour.
From there, we followed the shore road through Henderson Harbor and on to Sacket Harbor, the location of a British landing and battle during the War of 1812. Today that battlefield is just another farm where hay and dairy cattle appear to be the main business.
Sacket Harbor, a small but charming town, catering mostly to the tourist traffic, was also a staging base for two naval operations during the War of 1812 and the Navy continued to have an active presence there until the end of World War II.
