Anybody know where that foghorn is located in North Van? Hear it over at the base of Seymour Mt. Didn’t know there were any still active .
The foghorn you hear is from Pt. Atkinson, I believe. I grew up in Vancouver and loved listening to it as a child, but the MOF took the coastal foghorns away in 2002 or so as there wasn’t enough fog to justify their keep. Fortunately, they are back again. Today is the first time I’ve heard them working in years, but they sound different. The old siren sounded rather melancholy – much better than this one. I’m glad you like them…
