I fell in love with this lighthouse... I climbed all 5 staircases to the light at the very top... Panmure Head Lighthouse was built in 1853... Each floor is surprisingly large... I could happily live here (if it were for sale).... My dream has long been to live in a Lighthouse #panmureislandlighthouse #pei #5stories #mydreamlighthouse

🛳🕯🏝⚓️Panmure Island Lighthouse is 17.8 metres (58.4 feet) tall from its base to vane and was the second formal lighthouse built on Prince Edward Island. As the first lighthouse at Point Prim was built of brick, Panmure Head has the distinction of being the island’s first wooden lighthouse. The octagonal tower on Panmure Island is supported by a stone foundation and was built with heavy timbers using techniques employed by the local shipbuilding industry such as the use of wooden pegs or trunnels. The tower, which contains four stories connected by a wooden staircase, has many decorative features, like a corbelled cornice and pedimented windows and door, which make it a favorite subject for photographers. #lighthouse #pei #panmureisland #panmureislandprovincialpark #panmureislandlighthouse #naturephotography #outdoors #photooftheday #beautiful #woodconstruction #architecture #amazing #photography #instadaily #instabeauty #bluesky #navigation #structure #explore #exploreeverything #photogram #aroundtheworld #travel #travelphotography #coast
