Today’s Post: Exploring the PEI Bottle House Museum Grounds and #Write31Days Challenge Linkup with 31 Days of Travel
Edouard Arsenault built a six-gable house, a chapel, and a tavern out of approximately 30,000 bottles. But not the replica of the Cape Egmont lighthouse which is also part of the museum grounds.
During the ice-free months, Mr. Arsenault, his wife Rosina, and their two daughters lived in the original lighthouse, built in 1884 and located about two kilometers from the museum. He and his family were the last residents of the lighthouse. A keeper wasn’t needed to keep the generator going after electricity was installed.
Even though it’s September, a lovely array of flowers are in bloom and the grounds are beautiful.
Tomorrow we’ll search for sea glass along the beach near our cottage.
