By the light

The lighthouse on George's Island is one of the iconic landmarks of Halifax harbour. Unlike numerous smoke stacks, wind towers, tanks, construction cranes, buildings and antennas on the Dartmouth shore, which are annoying background features, the lighthouse has become something of a trademark in Halifax ship photography.
In late spring evenings, the light on the island and the lighthouse makes it particularly attractive.

Chebucto Pilot sets out in advance of the container ship APL Coral (see previous post). In the background the Wallenius-Wilhelmsen autocarrier Fedora sits at Autoport. It will sail after dark.

A few minutes later CCGS G.Peddle sails for coastal patrol.
