A Walk on the Beside the Rugged Cliffs on Prince Edward Island // Canada

Happy Friday friends! As I shared last week, I am so excited to share more about our time on Prince Edward Island! After we had our lighthouse adventure we went in search of teacup rock. I am giggling a bit as I write this because even though we had been given directions, we unfortunately had received a bit of mis-information on the exact location. Because of this we ended up spending time driving around, finding several new lighthouses, and finally ended up walking a lot beside the rugged cliffs of Prince Edward Island. So many times on this trip I was reminded how precious those moments are. We were fighting the sunset and loved every section as we searched and searched and yet, we truly enjoyed the adventure. While we never found teacup rock (you can find proper directions on how to find teacup rock HERE), we loved our adventure and this walk along the cliffs. It was gorgeous! A small note- for those who are familiar with teacup rock you will notice that we were in the right area, but because of the tide (and let's be real our outfits) we couldn't climb as high as we needed to over one of the cliffs. If we had had another day we definitely would have attempted to reach it and I definitely recommend it!
We arrived at the beach and were immediately struck by the beauty. Doesn't it look like a beautiful postcard?
Honestly, our views looked a bit fake because they were so gorgeous. 
As were walking I kept looking at the red cliffs that were to our left. There is something that just seems so "Prince Edward Island" about those cliffs.
It was definitely one of my favorite parts of our trip to the Island. Spending the last night in this part of PEI and having the opportunity to experience the beauty up close was an incredible gift. If you have a chance to walk this beach you will definitely want to add this to your itinerary. You won't regret it.

A Lighthouse Adventure on Prince Edward Island // Canada

Happy Wednesday friends! As I shared last week, I am so excited to share more about our time on Prince Edward Island, specifically today sharing more about our day that we spent on all things related to "Anne"! I know for a lot of people visiting the island this is one of the main reasons and so I hope that these posts are helpful in planning your own trip someday soon!
As I shared last week we started our "Anne" day (after waking up at the wonderful Montgomery Inn at Ingleside!) at the Anne of Green Gables Museum (which you can read more about our visit and the museum HERE!). After this we drove over to Green Gables and on the way we had a brief visit at L.M. Montgomery's Birthplace (which you can read about HERE). Like many girls who grew up loving "Anne" and her adventures we found visiting the Green Gables home to be delightful (which you can read about HERE!). After our time exploring the house we decided to walk along the trails that are at Green Gables (which you can read about HERE!)

After we left Green Gables and grabbed a quick bite to eat we headed out on an adventure in hopes of finding the lighthouse that was filmed when Anne and Diana are walking and talking in Anne of Green Gables. 
Let me be honest. We were told it would be easy to find. It's not. *smiles* 

To reach the lighthouse (the New London Range Rear Lighthouse) it is a bit of an adventure (which I personally loved, but I know not all will). It is not marked at all, you basically off-road for a bit in your car, and then you feel like you are parking in someones driveway when you finally arrive. And then it is long walk through the fields (the path is not kept up)... 

and it is worth every second.
It was honestly one of my favorite things we did on the island. 
There was just something so special about this adventure. 
First, it was absolutely gorgeous. 
Second, it felt like you had the whole part of the island in this region to yourself. Ali and I both felt that we were actually experiencing a movie moment as we walked, talked, laughed, and explored the area without any tourists.
Third, you feel like you are transported to a different era. For all of y'all who are going on a girls trip to Prince Edward Island take the time to go here. And seriously, wear long skirts or dresses. You will feel that you have walked into a different era.
Fourth, if you walk a bit past the lighthouse you can go to the beach and see the ocean. It is absolutely stunning from this area. 
Fifth, there is something so incredibly precious about this lighthouse. It truly is off the beaten path in Prince Edward Island and worth every single moment to get there if you have a car. 
Sixth, it is the perfect place for kindred spirits to laugh, talk, and make precious and life-long memories! When you take the girls trip to Prince Edward Island make sure to grab some pictures of this precious place and time! You will definitely treasure it forever.
