Lovely evening at Georgina Point as a schooner heads across the Strait of Georgia in the last light.
Georgina Point is part of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. It is a protected rocky headland sandwiched in between two ocean bays – Maude Bay on the left and Oyster Bay on the right. In front, the park rests at the doorstep of Active Pass. The pass is a popular ocean route running in between Galiano and Mayne Islands.
The lighthouse is no longer manned, but still dominates the point. The tall marine light station, complimented by a Canadian flag, was built in 1885 to warn ships of the incoming sharp reefs and rough waters of Active Pass. Now the lighthouse is a symbol of marine life on the westcoast and a protected landmark .
