Just as medieval castles are memorable evidence specific cultural and historical period, lighthouses are evidence of our long-term relationship with the ocean. Despite the fact that this technology is still used, new beacons are more like a modern, functional and unattractive tower over the buildings that were built in the last century. Many of them show a decline and neglect, but passionate people around the world have formed a group to restore and preserve this history.
I was lucky enough to visit the two remaining working lighthouse in Canada, to see the beauty of the structure and get an understanding of what it means to be a lighthouse keeper. I was backpacking for a week on the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island, this building was originally built in order to rescue the castaways. While I was thinking, I completely withdrew from civilization through forests, marshes and beaches, I walked straight through the perfectly manicured lawn at the house for the lighthouse. It was a welcome place to stay and the owners were happy to visitors and told us the story of a lighthouse.
