Did you say “lighthouse-keeper”?!

I don’t think I’ll ever forget the day my husband asked me if I’d like to be an assistant lighthouse-keeper for our family holiday.

Our first summer at Cabot Head Lighthouse.
“It’ll be fun!” he assured me.
I looked at him dubiously. Lighthouse? And assistant? Just what did that mean?
In August of 2000, we bundled our five-year-old son and our two cats (Wilbur and Orville) into the car and drove up to the Cabot Head Lighthouse on Georgian Bay. It turned out to be beginning of a long adventure—and the launch of what has become a deep love for and fascination with lighthouses.
Below are some of my favorite lighthouses: clicking on the title above each photo will take you to some photographs, videos and commentary.
