Swallowtail, situated on Grand Manan Island, is the most photographed lighthouse in New Brunswick. It is as old as Canada — built one year before Confederation — and it stands high on its northeast cliff as an enduring symbol of island strength and beauty.
Montreal-based Wendy Dathan came on the ferry around Swallowtail for the first time over thirty years ago and fell in love with the people and the place. Her story tells of her naturalist adventures with friends here and away, and her deepening friendship with an island lightkeeper with whom she shares the fun of Machias Seal Puffin watching and the trials of restoring a decrepit old house on the edge of the Fundy tides.
