While visiting the area this year you are going to be looking for things to do and let me tell you there is plenty here to see and have fun to make our beautiful provence your best stay any where .
Firstly let me tell you where to eat and see how beautiful our little town is.
Lockeport has 3 restaurants and they all are different but all are fun and the food is served with a local flair and personality that I can tell you from personal experience is not put on yes its real and I live here you get to leave but you may decide to stay after meeting our town and taste its cooking.
The next stop should absolutely be our place for your pictures with the horses and to watch a beautifully trained horse dance to music with a maritime beat.
Now if you are tired you can stay here at the ranch in our magnificent traditional coach house I am laughing as I say this as there is nothing that would resemble what a traditional life style would have been like because you want to enjoy your self and you are on vacation but you can feel and see for your self how the pioneers lived when they cleared the land and built these homes.
This is a fully top to bottom done over 1700 magnificent property that is usually only available with prior bookings due to its high demand It is private over looking the channel set back on its rolling lawns with a secret forest.
After your dance with a horse excursion and a good nights sleep you will want to go check out our town and have a walkabout Firstly go see Mike Cotters Lobster Factory I hope he is going to do tours this year it is amazing and will take about a hour and then you should make your way over to Tides of Time Gift Shop and see what the local artisans have made and get a book by our own writer Kathleen Tudor.
But one of the wonders of this area is a place called West Head on the way you will pass a house that is owned by some famous person they built it high and the kitchen is supposed to be on the top floor so they can watch the birds and it is windy and open and you can see as far as the eye can see there is sea birds and owl birds and duck birds every kind its just beautiful a treasure.
There is a pond thing beside the causeway and some thing lives in it so don't get to close, I saw it cross to the sea one day when I was up there and it was long and slow and big I actually felt it before I saw it and was leaving anyways because I felt scared. When I got to the road again I looked back and that when I saw it.
You will be getting hungry by now so come on back to the ranch and your picnic on the beach awaits you, carried by our beautiful burro Bucky that will walk with patently while you photograph the birds and seals that bask just off the shore the path will take you to the head of the island and have a lunch at a fish house set up with local decor and a very pretty apple orchard for more photo shoots .
