The lighthouse at Cape Tryon on the north shore of Prince Edward island is probably one of the most scenic and most photographed of all Island lighthouses. And like all the lights on the Island it is automated and has been declared surplus by federal government. It is also falling into disrepair. The light is located near Cousins Shore and was built in 1905.The original Cape Tryon lighthouse was deactivated in 1967 and a second lighthouse was built. Prince Edward Island is also known for its fishing villages like French River, not far from New London. The Island is also know for its shellfish and these fishers are harvesting oysters in Rustico Bay.
