After our night at Red Point, and before grabbing the ferry from Wood Islands, PEI to Nova Scotia, we headed over to Basin Head to check out the beach and their famed “singing sands” and then biked from there to the East Point Lighthouse. Basin Head was so cool (even though it was kind of cold from being so windy), and the singing sands were so weird! The sand legit made noises as you walked across it. I think it was just so breathtakingly beautiful because we hadn’t seen clear skies in a while, so the sun being so prominent was a sight for cloudy eyes. We were also the first, and only being at Basin Head! Until we biked away, and returned like 2 hours later…

But the bike to the lighthouse was horrible! The wind was killer! But it was pretty damn pretty. And the lighthouse looked really cool, and looked like it would have some really cool views, but unfortunately, apparently you have to pay $6 to walk up some stairs. Which is the biggest bullshit thing I have ever heard… Like I have to pay you to climb 2 flights of stairs? Bullshit, I hate when people take these amazing views of nature and put a price on them. We had biked and hadn’t planned on buying anything, so our money was an hour away, and they wouldn’t let us up to see out. But the lighthouse was pretty and the exercise was good! And the view from the bottom of the lighthouse was pretty nice too.
