This lighthouse with its black horizontal stripes is the tallest lighthouse on Prince Edward Island.
Today it is run by a non-profit community group which operates it as an inn, museum and craft store. The lighthouse is located in the Cedar Dunes Provincial Park at West Point and my husband and I have visited there a number of times although I have never posted photos of it.
We had a picnic in that park recently with the golden grand-dog and listened as a male cicada sang in the tree above us.
Later as Georgie and I walked the beach, my husband saw a cicada on the ground and took a photo.
It is a huge insect, with transparent wings, huge eyes and markings on its upper body. From its size alone, it could be the stuff of nightmares.
Meanwhile the second lobster season is well underway, this time for fishers along this southwest portion of the island. Offshore, boats were on their way back to the harbour at nearby West Point.
It is time for another meal of lobster.
