The road to Cape Palliser Lighthouse is beautiful in the morning. Once you get to the lighthouse, you have to turn around to get back to the main road. So you actually get to enjoy it twice!
It is a nice break to spend the nice in Lake Ferry, it is quiet, along Onoke lake, there is a nice pub at the hotel down the road.
The closer you get to the cape, the wilder the coast is. You can even spot sea lions resting on the ground, even on the road, but then they know better and keep going up past the road for a more quiet spot, away from the occasional car passing by, or stopping for pics.
Going up to the lighthouse can be quiet dangerous on windy days, but the view is nice. After sitting in the van for long drives, going up the steps in strong winds is quite a nice exercise for your legs!
