All of the lighthouse have now been automated and several have been turned into museums or interpretive centres. I personally think this is rather sad that not only did people lose their jobs but in most cases they lost their family houses. Lighthouse Keepers would be 2, 3 or 4 generations looking after the lighthouse. Old ways are disappearing much to fast!!
But on to big and better things right!! :)
The Point Amour Lighthouse stands tall amid limestone cliffs near the small, historically significant community of L'Anse Amour, on the south coast of Labrador.
The Raleigh Trail ~ Welcome to the Raleigh Trail. The trail is actually the road which once connected the Point Amour Lighthouse to the community of Lanse Amour, where the lighthouse supplies were landed. This road was in use until the present gravel road was constructed in 1970s. A walk along the trail offers spectacular view of the Strait of Belle Isle and leads to the site of the wreck of HMS Raleigh and several other ships.
