Storm damage at Terrence Bay lighthouse.
Chris Mills, Nova Scotia Lighthouse Preservation Society.
A reader sent this photo of the torn-up lighthouse. The lighthouse preservation people tell us this jewel is often the victim of surging seas, and in past years the Coast Guard, which still maintains the structure, has been pretty good about getting it repaired. People are notified, and somehow the strange beast of Coast Guard procurement will once again rise to the task, or so everyone thinks.
