East Point Lighthouse




Saturday was our day to take the PEI East Coastal Trail. The day was very windy along the ocean, but the sun was out to show the beauty of this island. As we headed to the East Point lighthouse in the northeast corner of the island, we took several side-trips to quaint fishing villages, and enjoyed talking to a few fishermen and learning about their mussel harvests, mackrel and tuna fishing. After visiting the lighthouse, we headed southeast where our next stop being the "Singing Sands Beach". The sands weren't singing that day, but it was a very pretty beach, and knowing it would be the last PEI beach we would visit, I got brave enough to roll up my jeans to tip my toes in the cold water. Next we stopped at the small town of Georgetown, and strolled through the city's lovely gardens. Arrived at Lanes Cottages and Suites in Montague, and once again my Trip Advisor recommendations had paid off with great lodging. We had a beautiful view of the river where we could watch the boats quietly come and go from the harbor, and a room that included all the luxuries of home.
