Visiting Lighthouses in PEI, September 6, 2017
Spent a sunny late morning and afternoon visiting 3 lighthouses along the shore of Green Gables tourist shoreline. Unlike many of the lighthouses highlighted in my blogs, these are not open to the public. Still worth the visit as they are all on beautiful coastlines and ohh—those ocean beaches that PEI is famous for.
Covehead Harbour Lighthouse, still active with an electric beacon is located within Prince Edward Island National Park. Overlooking a fantastic sand beach, this lighthouse sits within the fragile dunes.
North Rustico Lighthouse, and moving along the coast, the next 2 lighthouses sit in more isolated areas. The New London Lighthouse, decommissioned, and the last lighthouse we visited today was Cape Tryon Lighthouse sits beside a hay field on a rocky bluff, still an active lighthouse.
Along the way we stopped at By the River Bakery in Cavendish where they served all day breakfast along with lunch and also picnic baskets for the beach. Breakfast was really good, reasonably priced and the service was excellent.
Watch for the blog with photographs and whatever history I can find…. along with St. Peter’s Harbour Lighthouse
