I’ve born in a small town on the coast of British Columbia and spent my childhood fascinated by the ocean and the ships that sailed upon it. I dreamt of becoming a sailor and exploring the vastness of the sea. After finishing high school, I joined the Navy and served for several years. I learned the ins and outs of navigation, communication, and security on the open waters.
However, my passion for security and keeping sea men safe didn’t end when I retired from the Navy. Instead, I decided to use my expertise to become a lighthouse keeper. I saw lighthouses as guardians of the sea, and I took my new job very seriously.
My first assignment was at a lighthouse on the west coast of Vancouver Island, where I worked tirelessly to maintain the light and keep the surrounding waters safe. I was always on the lookout for any ships in distress and would go out of my way to offer assistance whenever I could.
One of my hobbies was gardening and landscaping, and I made sure that the lighthouse grounds were always in top shape. I planted flowers, trees, and shrubs, and even built a small vegetable garden to supplement my diet. I found solace in this gardening, which I saw as a way of bringing a bit of life and beauty to the otherwise harsh and unforgiving environment.
After several years at my first lighthouse, I was transferred to a new station on the coast of Nova Scotia. It was a significant change for me, as the climate and terrain were very different from what he was used to. Nevertheless, I quickly adapted to my new surroundings and continued my work of keeping the waters safe.
I continued to work as a lighthouse keeper until my retirement, and even then, I stayed connected to the sea. I spent my days tending to my garden and reminiscing about my days at sea. I remained passionate about security and keeping sea men safe, and my dedication to the job of a lighthouse keeper will always be remembered.
