Along Route 16 on the north shore of Prince Edward Island’s Points East Coastal Drive, I found miles of potato fields. Many of the forests on PEI have been cleared and planted with potatoes. PEI grows 25% of Canada’s potatoes. At the extreme northeastern tip of Prince Edward Island is East Point Lighthouse. The edge of the parking lot drops to the surf. You can climb a series of ladders to the lamp at the top of the lighthouse after photographing the exterior. Morning light works best here. If you are staying in Charlottetown, allow 90 minutes for the drive out to East Point where you can have breakfast in the Light House Café.
