Centre Island lighthouse

As a Fleming, I am not used to lakes. There is only one natural lake in Flanders, and we consider every water-filled pit of an acre or so to be a lake. So, the idea of Lake Ontario doesn't quite fit in our view of the world. After all, Lake Ontario is somewhere between 1.5 and 2 times as large as Flanders and there are six million people living there. A lake of the size of Lake Ontario displays a lot of sea-like behaviour, dangerous storms included. And there are obviously also navigational hazards. Those hazards can at least in part be solved by lighthouses. There are several lighthouses on the Islands. This one stands on Centre Island.
