Saskatchewan’s Lighthouse | Cochin, Saskatchewan
For my birthday last week my wish was to go on a little day trip and see a place in Saskatchewan that I’d never been. I chose Cochin, to see Saskatchewan’s only lighthouse. If you know anything about Saskatchewan, you know we are a land locked province, so the idea of a lighthouse is kind of . . . pointless. This one was built in the village of Cochin as a tourist attraction, and while it is nowhere near the ocean, it is right between two lakes; Jackfish Lake and Murray Lake.
We were lucky that last Wednesday was also really the first warm day we’ve had here all year and it was a beautiful drive out to Cochin.
I’m excited to already be already accomplishing something off of my list of twenty-eight things!
Photos are from my phone, Samsung Note 3 and camera, Canon 5D Mark II with the 35mm f/1.4 lens.
Is there a local place around you that you’ve never been
but would like to visit sometime?
I’m linking up with Oak & Oats.
Wow! Such a cool place!!! There’s an old wooden covered bridge around here somewhere that I’d love to visit and photograph one day! Now I just need to find it!
Oh, that sounds neat!
This looks like such a meat place. I love that it’s a pointless lighthouse, for some reason that makes it even better to me 🙂 I love your family photos, you are a beautiful family 🙂
Haha, it definitely makes it more unique!
Looks so serene there… and the steps up to the lighthouse really add to the atmosphere! Here in Berlin I still have yet to make it out to a place called peacock island, but hope to get there this summer.
I just Googled Peacock Island -it looks awesome!
I love traveling to near by places!!
Yes, you seem to have so many cool places nearby!
All of these pictures look like postcards! What great shots. So gorgeous!

I live in Alberta, so I’m very familiar with Saskatchewan’s terrain! How cool that there’s a lighthouse there.
Such gorgeous pictures you’ve captured here! Thanks for sharing.
Awesome! Where in Alberta do you live?
Wow, what a fun a special day! Open skies and never ending plains!.
Yeah, I suppose that’s the nice part of living on the prairies. 🙂
oh my gosh, the ones of just her and the clouds = swoon! such alovely pictures!!
Thanks Amy, that’s my favorite too!
Lighthouses are fun! Great photos. Looks like a great outing, but for me, anytime I’m next to water it will be a good outing!
Thanks Jess! Yes, water usually means it’s a good one! 🙂

What a cool story behind the lighthouse! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lighthouse that’s not right on the ocean. This seems like such a lovely, fun way to spend the day. And awesome about crossing one of your ’28 things’ off the list!
Yeah, it was a nice day!
the place looks amazing! and those horses in the distance…i must come see this place. 🙂
