This post is dedicated to my friend Chris Mills, a former lighthouse keeper living in Ketch Harbour, Nova Scotia. Chris loves all things related to light keeping and lighthouses and has written some great books on the subject.
|Cape Palliser light - reached by 250+ steps. It still sports an 1897 Fresnel lantern.|
|Bulldozers are used to launch and retrieve fishing boats on the loose shingle beach nearby.|
|Rani on the long climb to the light|
|Light detail - note the cast iron frames, lovely copper(?) dome, and Fresnel lens|
|Just down the road is a colony of fur seals.|
|These baby fur seals appeared to be quite unconcerned with us.|
