POTW – April 1 – Race Rock Lighthouse

I took this shot while out on a Orca whale watching during my vacation on Vancouver Island last summer.  It was the only pretty day I got on the trip. We were lucky to watch a playful transient pool of Orcas that day.  After watching the juvenile porpoise in and out of the water for a while, we headed off to towards Race Rock.  The clouds were starting roll back in when we got there, nearly swallowing the Washington mountains in the distance.

    My great grandmother Grace Argyle was born on Race Rocks in the 1870’s. Her parents, Thomas and Ellen Argyle ran the lighthouse there from 1867 to 1888. I would love a copy of your photograph. It is by far the best image of Race Rocks that I have seen since starting my research into this branch of my family. It is a stunning photograph, well done!
