As a true Pacific Northwest native, I really appreciated that in the stock footage at the beginning they actually included a true Seattle Christmas icon...the beautiful Bon Marché Star. Having said that, I do not know where in Canada this was filmed, but the lighthouse was beautiful. I understand it is Canada's oldest lighthouse on the west coast and not too far from where I grew up on Fidalgo Island. Cool!
I liked the concept of guests being able to stay in a working lighthouse and being given responsibilities tied to the lighthouse.
The whole recently divorced storyline I could have done without...especially since the writers at times acted like it had been years since they had spent Christmas together, but they have only been divorced for a year and at the most the son could have only spent one Christmas with his dad...except since he dad had an affair and is still with the woman expecting a baby, that math doesn't really add up either.
If you take out that sad sack story and poor math, the finding a town into Christmas and a male role model I appreciated. Saving the light house I appreciated.
Like several other stories this year and last, I felt like they tried to add too much in. Sometimes keeping a story simple just works. A Christmas Carol, for example, is a simple story...and it works. Based on that, this is not really a recommendation from me...except to anyone wanting to see the Fisgard Lighthouse.
