Wild Pacific Trail – Lighthouse Loop

All photos taken on October 10, 2022.

The morning dawned, shrouded in thick fog. While it slowly burned off, increasing off-shore winds soon pushed it back inland for the rest of the day.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. We did hike part of the trail on sunny days and the views were stunning, but the fog for this walk was a bonus. This area has a lot of foggy days. Benji likes to be in charge and pound for pound does a good job of pulling us all along. He is a great little explorer. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


  1. I absolutely love lighthouses, so enjoyed this post very much. Such a pretty and atmospheric approach too, a fun way to build the anticipation of seeing the structure. This one has got some stellar history and somehow the misty mood compliments it perfectly.

    1. I can not imagine being on this trail during a winter storm. It is beautiful on a calm day, but for those who do not see the light from the sea, it is very unforgiving. The lighthouse was definitely built to withstand the harsh elements. It was a great walk. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan

    1. We had a bit of a reprieve from the fog today and the air quality was better today, but it is supposed to be back with a vengeance tomorrow. What with the fog? Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


  2. Wow, what a fantastic trail, Allan. Most people would agree that foggy weather is not the most appealing of all weather conditions. It can be pretty restrictive, especially if you’re trying to get from one place to the next. I believe that fog can be a wonderful gift to the photographer, adding a moody ambience to almost any scene. Fog has the ability to take the most ordinary and mundane locations and transform them into magical places. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Thanks Aiva. I was a bit disappointed at the lack of sun when we first started our hike, but saw the beauty of it at each glimpse of the coast. We did see it on another day with sunshine and getting both looks at it made it hard to choose which was better. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan
