This website is dedicated to the lighthouse keepers of British Columbia, Canada, and for the general public who want to learn what life was/is like on a lighthouse. This site also supports the fight against the automation and destruction of ALL lighthouses and the environment surrounding them.
Also available here is a large database (db) of names of British Columbia (BC) Lighthouse Keepers – past and present.
Plus, I will toss in anything lighthouse that seems interesting – such as Coast Guard, ships, helicopters, hovercraft, personnel, changes, weather, museums, paintings, websites, catalogs, art, toys, drawings, videos, books, manuals, music, poetry, etc.
I would also like to include environmental issues that affect the lands and oceans on the BC coast such as pollution, garbage, possible oil spills, shipwrecks, etc. as these are all part of the role of the lighthouse keeper who sees and knows everything on the coast.
Everybody that likes lighthouses likes lighthouse information and memorabilia! Make sure you check out my Facebook page too.
