Lighthouse of the Week, January 11-17, 2015: Portlock Point, British Columbia

I went back to coastal Canada, British Columbia, for a cute little lighthouse this week.  It's called the Portlock Point lighthouse on Prevost Island.   That island is in the southern Gulf islands, which are on the other side of the Strait of Georgia/Salish Sea from Vancouver.  Hence, there is a lot of ferry traffic past this little lighthouse.

More about it here:   Portlock Point, BC  (interesting story here, and a locator map)

There are four pictures below.  The last one shows a bit of a surprise;  despite its petite character, from the right angle this lighthouse has an amazing setting.
