Pelee Island part two

After seeing Fish Point we ate our lunch overlooking South Bay where there was a little beach:

We continued our ride east along South Shore Road then up the east coast of the island along East Shore Road. We noticed many homes for sale all over the island. We passed two small beaches, East Park and Sunrise, and headed up to Parson`s Road en route to the airport. We passed a vineyard where the grapes were tiny, smaller than mothballs:

(My postcards mailed from Baarle-Hertog and Point Roberts unfortunately were not cancelled in either location.)

On the walk to the lighthouse in the northeast by Lake Henry Marsh:

We passed by what I nicknamed the Coronavirus Tree:
