Historic Lighthouse, Beach Point, Prince Edward Island, Canada

For many years the picturesque Beach Point Lighthouse stood at the entrance to the Murray Bay in southeastern Prince Edward Island, Canada. It was the beacon to the many PEI fishermen who had to navigate in to the many fishing wharfs such as  Beach Point, Murray Harbour, Murray River, etc. Recently due to a rare storm surge/nor'easter, the lighthouse was dislodged from its cement foundation and carried by the waves to rest on a nearby beach. The lighthouse is presently laying on its side...what will be done with it is not known yet..the provincial government will have to decide its fate. Many people who have seen the Beach Point Lighthouse or have read about it are very saddened. The lighthouse got into the minds and souls of many local residents as well as people from other parts of the world. Hopefully the lighthouse will be put back on a more secure footing and guard the entrance to the Murray Bay..."will these bones live again"?...time will tell...

PEI lighhouses are attractive to PEI Real Estate purchasers...they enjoy having a lighthouse in their view...

That's all for now...

Hey George, Great Picture,

what a shame, that these historic landmarks can't be protected and saved in a more positive way.

many of the west coast light houses are gone or going as well, Victoria's  most famous light house

peter & linda...thank you for your valued comments...yes, the PEI lighthouse has been on its side for a long time and residents and non-residents are wondering why no action has been taken to restore it, and put it on its bottom...thanks again ...
