I worried it would be foggy again the next morning, but it was beautiful and clear. I wanted to walk the beach at sunrise… we got up around dawn (5 am Atlantic time) and went to Brackley Beach to find the lighthouse. It was gorgeous, no one around but us, the local fisherman going out in their boats, egrets and mosquitoes. It was chilly and my feet were cold walking barefoot on the beach. The water and wet sand was much warmer.
On our way to East Point light we stopped at Campbell’s Cove Provincial Park and walked the beach. It looked just like the other beaches we’ve walked but had a lot more shell pieces and pretty stones.
East Point was cold and windy. The visitors and crafts building was open and warm. It was there we learned about a second light house promotion for visitors who go to both North Cape and East Point: collect a ribbon at each and receive a certificate. If we had only known about it when at North Cape earlier.
We continued on to Georgetown and after a stop there, Panmure Island light.
We climbed to the top of Panmure light. It seemed higher and steeper than at West Point.
The gate was closed to the Wood’s Island lighthouse and Phil needed to crawl under a fence to get the rubbing. It’s normally open for tours, but was closed the day we were there.
Point Prim was the next light we visited. This is the only round light house on PEI. It was low tide and we could walk far out on the rocks.
Blockhouse light outside of Charlottetown was next. It was hard to find; we thought it was in Port-La-Joye/Fort Amherst National Historic Site but it was next to it instead. The historical site was interesting and we found the lighthouse later in the day.
Then on to Victoria light. It’s in a lovely little seaside village surrounded by farms and potato fields.
Our last lighthouse before leaving the island was Seacow Head. You can see the full span of Confederation Bridge from there. You don’t realize how high and how long it is until you see tiny specks of tractor trailer trucks driving across it.
