Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Site, Vancouver Island, B.C.
The Fisgard Lighthouse was the first lighthouse on Canada's west coast. The light was automated in 1929, but from 1860 to 1929, the lighthouse was home to a succession of lighthouse keepers. The Lighthouse is impeccably preserved and open to the public for self-guided tours. The Lighthouse is located on Fort Rodd Hill and marks the home base for the Royal Canadian Navy. While we were visiting the Lighthouse, it was raining off and on and I was trying hard not to get rain on the lens of my camera. I was going to take the flying bird out of the photo, but decided to leave it in.
