Fisgard Light House

This fine old lighthouse, the oldest on Canada's west coast, was built in 1860 and is still operational, although it is now automated. Fisgard Lighthouse and the adjacent Fort Rodd Hill Park are only a short drive from Victoria's downtown and I propose to visit them again when the weather is a little less forbidding.

There's a certain melancholy air to lighthouses; they perch on the remote an hazardous fringe of coasts where many lives have been lost.
