Point Atkinson Lighthouse

On a perfect summer day, we hiked through Point Atkinson Park to the lighthouse. Usually, the lighthouse was closed off to the public, but on this and about four other days that summer, this locked off area was open to those who registered with the guides to celebrate Canada’s 150th.

This was a treat, as we not only saw the cottages where various lighthouse keepers lived and rooms where old photos were displayed, but even the keepers’ lighthouse log books.

Yet best of all was the view because the lighthouse sat at the entrance to Burrard Inlet. Across the inlet was the headland where the University of British Columbia was located; to the east was Lions Gate Bridge and downtown Vancouver.
