A Trip to Point Prim

We went on a business day trip yesterday, out to Point Prim to deliver books. It was a beautiful sunny day – nice and warm. The Point Prim lighthouse standing strong on the headland since 1845. It is the oldest lighthouse on PEI. There are picnic benches around here and there and the view is spectacular. On a clear day you can across the Northumberland Strait to Nova Scotia. It lies purple on the horizon. Sometimes you can watch the ferries making their stately way across the Strait passing each other on their way. The old family home of some of ancestors, the MacNeil’s, Lies just down the shore from here. My great Uncle Huey was known as the rhubarb man. He had a whole field of it down by the road and people could pick what they needed and leave the money in a can at the end of the lane all on the the honor system. I don’t think he was ever disappointed.
