Fathom Five National Marine Park, Ontario: Flowerpot Island

The United States has a few areas off of its coastline that has been designated as the equivalent of a national park. The contents are preserved that way.

Canada had the same idea. Thus the Fathom Five National Marine Park was created at the end of the Bruce Peninsula.

The big attraction is Flowerpot Island, about three miles off the coast of the Bruce Peninsula. And the big attraction of Flowerpot Island is its two seastacks. You can see one of them in this picture. Yes, apparently everyone sees a face in the top right of the one above.

Visitors can take a boat to the dock, be dropped off, hike for a while, and then get a ride back. I'll bet there are worse ways to spend a summer afternoon.
