Grande Digue Lighthouse and Picking your Neighbors

My daughter and I went driving around yesterday in search of a couple of lighthouses near Shédiac in New Brunswick. This one is in Grande Digue, a small community along the coast just north of Shédiac.

This particular lighthouse is not open to the public and is a working lighthouse. The road leading to it is a gravel/grass right of way. It made me feel like I was driving on someone’s property.

After a few minutes there, we met Jody. She owns the little house seen here and lives right next to it. She told me that when the owner of this home died, she purchased it because she didn’t want someone buying the property to build a large home on the coast and block her view. I say good thinking. Buying property around yours is indeed the best way to pick your neighbors.

Jody rents the little cottage to tourists between June and September and she always keeps an eye on the lighthouse.

We can hardly see it in the picture but there is a clothes’ line hanging from the house to the lighthouse, which I thought was pretty cool. I don’t know about you but the thought of hanging my clothes on a lighthouse by the sea for a few days is very appealing to me. Send me an email if you want to get in touch with Jody.
