As can be seen in yesterday's photo (below), Fisgard Lighthouse is joined to the mainland by a causeway. However, this is relatively recent and for many years the lighthouse keeper needed to keep a boat for traveling back and forth to Esquimalt for groceries and mail. On a day such as pictured above this would be a pleasant row but often the trip across this harbour entrance meant high winds and dangerous waves. At least one lighthouse keeper lost his life while making this crossing.

Beautiful composition! We're having some stellar weather. It's all I can do to keep from shirking all responsibilities and taking the ferry over to Victoria.

What a serene setting.
If it was on land, it would be called 'pastoral'.
