Prince Edward Island Day 2: Lighthouse and Sunsets

More photos from my amazing adventure to Prince Edward Island. We are taking off right after the end of the last weeks Day 2 (if you haven’t checked it out click here). We start our journey in New Glasgow, PEI and head to find a lighthouse and found so much more, check it out below.

prince edward island (12)Using a map I found at the restaurant that showed where all the lighthouses were on the island I found one not far away for us to drive to. So we headed out to find this lighthouse and discovered this little fishing village.

Unlike the campground this beach was beautiful and not covered with shells. This is Zara after scrambling down the sand dune while I was still on top.

The second one is me carrying all my cameras I decided to bring to take a few photos of Victor with the lighthouse (it was the only thing he was excited to see). It looks so silly on the beach, I wish I had ran back to grab my bag.  Lol.

prince edward island (40)We were there for probably 30minutes and the sky just changes so rapidly. I thought since the sun rose in the East that watching the sunset from PEI would be the most beautiful but trust me the sunset here owns.

We were in such a rush to get back in time to watch the moon rise like the night before but Zara let me take me outta the car to capture the last moments of sun. PEI has the most wonderful sky, if couldn’t tell from all the photos the sky is 80’s of the skyline and being from the city its just so amazing. I felt like the sky was surrounding me and for watching the sunset which usually doesn’t last very long in the city seems to grag on forever and you got to see the sun stretch till the end of the skyline and just slip below.

stars starsMe and Victor toke a nice walk down the beach past all the campsites and toke photos of the stars. You can see the Big Dipper in the last photo. I was really proud of myself for spotting it because I am not very good with constellations. I loved just standing on the beach starting up at the sky and seeing all the stars. I’ve loved stars since I was a kid and I miss them living in a big city. Below is me and the stars behind me playing with my flashlight on the beach – hard to see me but you can see my shoes!

There will be a special second post today of Zara in Wonderland with photos from our second day in PEI at sunset so check out that too. Next week will be the last installment I think of our adventure if I can manage to whittle down the photos. It will have more lighthouses, wind mills, horses, the north point of PEI and more New Brunswick.
