Day 3 On Prince Edward Island

Saturday August 28th

Today we toured the eastern coast of the Island.  The drive brings you to fishing villages and past potato farms and lighthouses.  PEI is basically and agricultural province. 



Cape Bear Lighthouse and Marconi Station.  Here is where the first distress signal was heard as the Titanic sank off Newfoundland.

We stopped at a small farmers market on the coast and bought lunch, found a beach to enjoy.

Such beauty everywhere you look, but pay attention the roads do end abruptly.


Wood Island Lighthouse was built in 1876 and is the second oldest lighthouse with a square tower. 


Wood Island Ferry terminal.  The Ferry runs from Wood Island to Caribou, Nova Scotia, It’s a 75 minute trip. 

We were lucky to be here when the ferry was coming in.
