My focus is on the 19 years that my parents, George and Stella LaPointe spent as lighthouse keepers on Heron Island, New Brunswick.

I hope you will find their story of these years interesting and I hope it will give you a bit of an insight into what life was like back then for George and Stella and the other families on the island and across the country.

Please give me some feedback through email. Read on.
