Our Top 5 Lighthouses to Tour | Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island Day 2

Our top 5 Lighthouses to Tour

This blog post really isn’t for any of you.  No really it isn’t…I’d be perfectly fine if you decided to not even spend any time looking…although I know you do want to look…I’m being honest, it’s not for you.

You might ask me then, who’s it for?  My reply…us.  My mister and I to have these memories…but second and foremost is for our families to see and be involved with our lives.  So in reality this isn’t for you…but I’m glad you get to enjoy seeing new places through our eyes and experiences…so honestly I”m glad you joined me here on this blog post…even though my intention wasn’t for you!  If you missed the previous posts…be sure to go back and catch up!

Prince Edward Island Canada Day 3

Our second day in PEI we woke up refreshed and ready to go.  We stopped for breakfast at a cute little place, Cora’s, in downtown Charlottetown…went down the street and grabbed coffee at a quaint little place and hit the road exploring the coast and lighthouses.

#1 Visit the Oldest Lighthouse on the Island – Point Prim

Our first lighthouse we scooted to was the oldest on PEI, Point Prim…we took a tour to the top of the lighthouse and bought our one ornament for this trip.  I am not a souvenir person AT ALL…so I like to get a Christmas tree ornament from the places we’ve been.  We chose a piece of sea glass that had this lighthouse painted on it.  The artist lives on the island and was a lighthouse watchmen’s child from this particular lighthouse.  I love local handmade art.

#2 Wood Islands Lighthouse was our second lighthouse stop.  It was beautiful sitting right on the red sand beach coast.  It has 10 rooms and was a pretty large lighthouse compared to the others we toured.  Paying to tour the lighthouses helps the small communities keep the lighthouses open for tourism.  We were happy to do so!

#3 Cape Bear Lighthouse  We drove many miles…saw many beautiful sites and took lots and lots of pictures!  That which I don’t regret…we made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at a picnic spot right here at this lighthouse…it’s not like there is a restaurant on every corner…it is not commercialized at all…although when my mister went into ask for some directions the locals just happened to have fresh baked pies…he came out with a piece of amazing strawberry rhubarb pie….yummmyyy!!  I’ll take that!

#4 Panmure Head Lighthouse We drove out to Panmure Island Provincial Park where on the right hand side is white sand beaches and on the left hand side is the red sand beaches.  At the end of this beach is the Panmure Head Lighthouse where there are horses grazing right on the coast, it’s a beautiful site.  Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS Prince Edward IslandPIN THIS

#5 West Point Lighthouse We then drove three hours from the east side of the island all the way to the west side of the island to see the most unique lighthouse on the island.  It’s the only black and white lighthouse and it sits right on a recreation beach…again it’s beautiful!  We were sure crossing our fingers that this long drive would be worth it…it totally was, although we were so ready to be out of the car!  We drove way too many miles!!!

We had a grand time at sunset there touring the lighthouse, walking the beach, finding sea glass and beautiful rocks.  We then hit up the local restaurant and enjoyed some yummy seafood…we left there and chased a gorgeous sunset and God led us to the right spot at the right moment when it was beautiful.  We thought we had missed it but God gave us a little peek of the sunset beauty he created.

God’s creation leaves me speechless.
