Theodore ride and the lighthouse.
I was excited to make my work trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia, because I wanted to explore another lighthouse to finish my journey of visiting 50 lighthouses. I am almost there.
Yes, I did join the kids onboard the "Theodore" boat. The weather was a little chilly and cloudy, yet a beautiful day to sail the harbor.
History says that “the original lighthouse on George Island was built in 1876. A second tower was built in 1903 but was destroyed by fire. This current tower was built in 1917 and was first lit in 1919.” A lightkeeper's house remains standing next to it, which projects a historic lighthouse's typical image. It’s a beautiful image.
There is no access to the island, and the only way to see the lighthouse up close is via sailboat.
My lighthouse journey gives me different and fun stories. This one, for sure, is something peculiar.
I would go back to explore more lighthouses around. They have 41 lighthouses in Nova Scotia alone. Maybe another ferry will take me to see some of them.
