My Lighthouse list!
I reside in landlocked Saskatchewan. While we actually do have a couple of lighthouses located in the province, there are so many more in our beautiful country that I would like to visit one day! I have created this list to remind me of where I would like to visit and to hopefully inspire others to do the same. In a time when International travel is harder to do it is nice to be reminded that we have so much beauty and interesting things to see right in “our own backyard” Canada is rich in history and we as Canadians need to remember to embrace it and celebrate it!
