We'll Leave The Light On

Back in the weather service days every new weather observer in BC were stationed for two years in Dease Lake if married, or six months on Cape St. James if single.
The Cape, as it was colloquially known, was a lighthouse and weather station perched on a rock at the extreme south end of Haida Gwaii (then known as the Queen Charlotte Islands). Access to the Cape was via semi annual resupply ship or bi-weekly (I think...) helicopter. The Cape has long since been automated, much to the relief of new technicians no doubt!

Needless to say I took Dease Lake...
