Covehead Harbour Lighthouse, Prince Edward Island

Covehead Harbour Lighthouse

After eating at Richard’s Fresh Seafood this evening in Covehead Harbour, we walked about 2 minutes down the road and explored the site of the Covehead Harbour Lighthouse. The sun was descending low in the sky and there was such a beautiful golden hour glow forming when I took this photo.

Built in 1967 and located beside the entrance to Covehead Bay, this lighthouse is located inside the Prince Edward Island National Park. There is a plaque on the side of the lighthouse describing the Yankee Gale and remembering those who perished in the storm. There is a path across the dunes to the beach. Enjoy a nice walk but confine your swimming to the superivised areas for your safety. The undertow can be strong, dangerous and unpredictable.
