PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND SEPTEMBER 10-17
The New Jersey Lighthouse Society’s trip for 2016 will take us to the smallest of the Canadian provinces: Prince Edward Island. As small as the island is, with its varied cultures of the Mi'kmaq First Nations, French, English, Irish and Scottish, it has a rich maritime history of ship building, fishing and farming. Prince Edward Island has over 60 lighthouses of various types and shapes. Charlottetown, the capital of the Province, is the largest city on the Island.
We will start our tour in Charlottetown on Saturday, September 10, with our “Welcome To Dinner” and end on September 17 with our “Going Away Dinner” and returning home the next day. Besides seeing 47 lighthouses, we will be visiting MacAusland's Woolen Mill Tour, (where wool is spun into yarn and made into products), The Canadian Potato Museum (PEI grows over 25% of the potatoes used by Canadians), the home of Anne of Green Gables, the Anne of Green Gables Museum, the Basin Head Fisheries Museum, the Bottle Houses (3 houses built with 25,000 bottles), the North Cape Wind Energy Interpretive Center, and the Cows Creamery Tour (makers of ice cream and cheese). We will be spending the entire stay at the Best Western Charlottetown in downtown Charlottetown.
