    Congratulations Nicole and Peter on a job well done. I was there on your Wedding Day and I have to agree that it was magical being on the tip of the most eastern point of North America and the view was breath taking. I hope that you will get lots of tourist from around the world, it will be an experience and memory that will remain with them forever as it has with me.

    Nicole, congratulations to you and your husband on the realization of your dream. I still intend to walk out there and paint some day, just can't seem to get around to it. Wishing you much success. Dora

    Terrific article and sounds like a spot on view. Will have to take it in next time I am on the rock.

    Great story about these people. It is important to note that the actual fort is in ruins and has been abandoned by all levels of government. Also, the next time you are there look at the base of the lighthouse and you will see some steel brackets recently installed, the lighthouse is shifting and the foundation crumbling below it. If you have any connections with Fort Amherst, say goodbye to it all! Has the Telegram ever done a story on the Fort Amherst ruins?

    Great the houses are being taken care of but a shame that the rest of Fort Amherst is left to rot away!

    A truly awesome place to visit! Even without the sunrise, there is something mystical in the air! Good luck with your uniquely located tourist attraction!

    sunset ? You mean sunrise ? "Peter and Nicole Gill throw in a little something extra when tourists rent out their vacation home: a sunset that possibly nobody else in North America has laid eyes on yet."
