West Point Lighthouse, Prince Edward Island
I didn't know Carol booked us a room in a lighthouse until our plane landed in Nova Scotia. A very nice surprise Carol! The West Point lighthouse was a long way from the Halifax airport but it was worth the trip. We arrived at 5 PM and ate dinner in the lighthouse restaurant. We went for a walk on the beach but it was starting to rain so we went back to the restaurant for dessert. The wind blew hard all night and whistled through the cracks of the double hung window in our room. I can only imagine what the keepers must have thought when a nor'easter blew over the island. It was a beautiful morning, just look at that blue sky, where are the clouds?
Detail of the light house history can be found on this web site.
