Sunday I drove all the way out to the end of Miscou Island, the furthest point northeast one may drive in New Brunswick, and there I found the above referenced lighthouse:
It was sooooo windy (this was the very, very windy day) that they actually have to tie down their lighthouse!!
This was also where I found another little painted rock:
I guess I should find out what this is all about. Maybe it’s leading me to treasure!
I’ve always assumed that these were all hand-painted but this one may be decals. I didn’t think so at the time, but looking at the photos I took I think they are. I will scrutinize future ones more carefully.

This is who is doing the work (if you want to get a quote). Tell them JohnBoy sent you and they’ll say “Who?”.
