Binnacle Island

binnacleisland

This is tiny, lovely Binnacle island in the St. Lawrence river between the US and Canada. I wrote about it before, but this is a better view of what the place is like. It is maintained entirely by volunteer members of the US Power Squadron, and as you can see they do a wonderful job. When we were there they were rebuilding the deck on the house up at the top of the rock, but we were tied up to a dock down at the river level, where the group barbecued some pork and shared food. If you look closely you can see the sign with the island’s name on it, which is of no practical use since it’s entirely invisible until you’ve actually docked. The sign sets the mood for the whole place: quirky, offbeat, and charming.
