The historic lighthouse in Beach Point, Prince Edward Island, Canada that was displaced from its location by a storm/tidal surge took the first step in returning to its original location. Yesterday (May 30, 2011) the lighthouse was hauled from its position at the Beach Point parking yard to within a few hundred feet of where it will once again be at the entrance to the harbour. The Federal Department of Fisheries & Oceans will build a base for it very close to its original position. The lighhouse should be ready around the last of June, 2011.
This is great news for all of the admirers of the historic structure. A great many people signed petitions that were presented to the Federal Government of Canada, and because of this, action was taken to restore it. Local residents and admirers from away are all expressing extreme pleasure on facebook and other social media for the good news.
Structures like the Beach Point lighthouse certainly add to the PEI Tourist industry and this leads to good news for the PEI Real Estate market. Investors very much enjoy owning PEI properties that have scenic views of lighhouses, wharfs, etc.
That's it for now...
