Day 2: Red Point Provincial Park

 We drove along the West side of PEI and went to the beach in various spots. Along the way we encountered our 2nd lighthouse, the one at Howards Cove. It's tiny!

We took a drive in the evening to Cape North lighthouse as Terry pointed out that he'd actually like to see a lighthouse at night. But the Cape North lighthouse is nothing special and not very big so he was a bit disappointed.  We ended up walking into the darkness and went to sit on a bench overlooking the cliff. Of course we have no idea how dangerous it was to do so.

After a nice evening at Cedar Dunes, we drove to Cabot Beach, and got there around 11am. But it was Sunday Morning and we learned afterwards that it was a long week-end at least in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The lady told us to come back at 2pm, that she'd know then if she had any spots, so we drove to Cavendish and other federal campground, they were booked solid, no overflow sites.

 We decided to keep going so end up at Red Point Provincial Park. After being told there was no room in 3 different campgrounds, being told that we could camp in the big lawn as an overflow site, made our day. She said she'd have a spot for us the next day but we decided to just book 1 night.
