This is a fairly famous Lighthouse, and we enjoyed spending a few minutes seeing and photographing it.  It is located on an islet just off the northern end of Campobello Island.  At low tide, tourists can carefully climb down, cross the narrow strip of land, and then go up the metal ladders to get an up-close view.  But this is on the Bay of Fundy, world-famous for the speed and size of its tidal bore, so you've got to be careful to avoid getting stranded.  Alas, it was high tide when we visited, so this option wasn't available to us.
