Last week, we went on a little road trip! Our plan was to visit Summerside, then grab some lunch for a picnic at Scapes and head to the Chelton Beach Provincial Park. We did just that, I will share our beach photos and excellent food from Scapes and the beautiful beach (with the Confederation Bridge near it) in a separate blog post.
Our first stop in Summerside was at Samuel's Coffee House. Next door, in front of The Journal Pioneer office, we noticed a beautiful lighthouse. Celeste and I went to check it out. We discovered that it was part of a series. This particular one is called "Seas the Day" by Jackie Whelan. I really liked the quote written on the bottom part "A lighthouse will guide you home to the beaches where you can roam".
Samuel's Coffee House was a perfect place to start our day. The atmosphere, the service, and the drinks were all great. I had the chai tea latte made with almond milk, it was tasty!
We drove around Summerside, along Granville and Central Streets. We then stopped at Spinnakers' Landing.
We found another lighthouse there! This one is called "La Lumiere de l'Acadie" (Acadian Light) made by Ecole Evangeline.
Spinnakers' Landing has a nice assortment of unique shops, very enjoyable to walk around!
We spent a couple of hours only in Summerside, but we will come again for a visit soon to find all the lighthouse 2014 projects! There are 17 in total throughout the city. You can read more about them here.
