Point Prim Lighthouse

Daily Image - 8 July 2011 - Point Prim Lighthouse

The Point Prim lighthouse guards the narrow, rocky, often storm-tossed and almost always foggy entrance to the Digby Gut and Annapolis Basin. This lighthouse is the fourth to do the job since 1804. As you will notice by the peeling paint and unkempt condition, this is still an active lighthouse, “maintained” by the Canadian Coast Guard. The Coast Guard and Heritage Canada have abandoned most lighthouses in Canada and I have complete confidence that this one will also be struck from the list in the not too distant future. God forbid that the Canadian Coast Guard maintain important aids to navigation!
