Accordingly, this week's feature for "From Our Cove" is a framed print of my painting of the grand old sentinel at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, Gannet Rock Lighthouse:
The original lighthouse was built in 1832, the one depicted in this painting many years later.
I painted the lighthouse as it was when still manned. Since being fully automated, some buildings have been removed. This lonely outpost, 8 miles off Grand Manan Island, really has a sense of the open sea all about it, and as a "sentinel", the lighthouse has stood guard at the centre of the entrance to the Bay of Fundy, its powerful light warning ships and guiding them for close to two centuries.
