The old Waterfront Lighthouse has been there for many years, guiding in the lost seamen of the north.
Captain Mackey was one of those seaman that was guided into shore by the Waterfront.
“All of a sudden a huge storm came up and threaten to sink our boat. The water was overlapping the sides of the boat. While the boat was being tossed about the men were all on their knees, saying their hail Mary’s.
As the captain of the boat I had to remain calm and try to get the men to calm down too. Sure, I remained calm on the outside, but my insides were being battered and beaten along with the boat.
Suddenly we saw the glorious guiding light from the Waterfront and knew we didn’t have much farther to go to safety. We slowly limped ashore. Our boat was full of water and the men and I were trembling with fear and from being wet and cold. We owe our lives to the Waterfront Lighthouse.”
