There’s no question about it, Prince Edward Island was my favourite destination on the East Coast.
I stayed in PEI for three days – the longest stop during our travels. We managed to drive the entire island, including North Cape, Green Gables Shore, Points East Coastal and Charlottetown.
My journey there will be divided into a couple of posts. To start, I’d like to share my experiences at the North Lake Habour and Point Prim Peninsula.
North Lake Harbour is located in Kings County in the eastern portion of Prince Edward Island. We managed to arrive there before lunch, as the fisherman returned with their lobster haul. While on site, we met a couple of friendly workers – including one man originally from the Toronto, On. area – while a few others seemed (understandably) territorial.
Near the end of the day, we discovered (my now favourite) lighthouse in PEI: Point Prim. According to Tourism PEI, Point Prim was “named after the ship which brought the first Scottish settlers to the Island … Point Prim Lighthouse, perched on the outer-most tip of the peninsula, is not only the Island’s oldest lighthouse but also the only circular brick lighthouse in Canada.”
We loved the area so much, we came back to relax and watch the sunset. But before we left, I watched the sun go down in the purple sky and told myself I’d never forget the beauty of Prince Edward Island.
