We thought it would be fun to start a blog to show a little about summer life at the lighthouse.
Each year 3 teens train as tour guides for the Point Prim Lighthouse. Well these girls did not have to train too hard! They are naturally good spirited, open and welcoming!
Meet our summer crew, Michaela Gillis, Hailey McKenna and Katelyn O’Shea. Three lifelong friends working together at Point Prim Light, to welcome visitors from near and far.
“Hi, I’m Katelyn O’shea and I live in Iona, PEI. I love working at the lighthouse and meeting new people. For fun I play sports and hang out with my friends. I’ve lived here all my life and attend Montague High. This year we were lucky and have a new, state of the art, high school. While working at the lighthouse I’ve met people from all over the world and learned about their lives.”
“Hiya, I’m Hailey McKenna. I live in Belfast. PEI. This summer I am working at the Point Prim Lighthouse and in September I will be heading back to MRHS to our brand new high school. If you can’t find me at work, you can always find me with friends, at bonfires or in the “loft.” I enjoy dancing, shopping and long walks on the beach. My friends would describe me as fun to be around, thoughtful and responsible. I can make the best out of every situation. Working at the lighthouse is fun because I get to meet people from all over and I hope that you will enjoy learning about them as well, from our photos in this blog, Caio.”
“Hi, I’m Michaela Gillis and I started working at the Point Prim Lighthouse in early July of 2010. I really enjoy working here. It’s amazing all the things a person can learn about. I’ve learned that my great, great, GREAT grandfather, Michael McLeod, was a lightkeeper here! But enough about my job and let’s get on to what my life is like outside the lighthouse. I’m a 16 year old girl and I live in Point Prim. I attend 11th grade at Montague Regional High School and I’m ecstatic to go to the new school this year. They have a new program this year on culinary skills (which is a big interest in my life) as well as animals. I haven’t quite decided what I want to do in the future yet, but hopefully it will be along the lines of cooking or dealing with animals. On my free time you can always see me playing soccer and hanging out with my friends and boyfriend. Enjoy the rest of the blog site and meeting some of the wonderful people I was honored to meet this summer. Au revoir.”
