The Barnes

 

Cheryl and Bobby Barnes are my good neighbors here on Point Prim. They’ve been coming up from Weymouth, Massachusetts each summer for many years. This year they were joined by son, Jon Alec and his family, Mackenzie, Isabelle and Julie. They came to the lighthouse TWICE to go to the top and picnic on our pretty grounds! – Linda

 

 

 

A happy group

A Happy Group

Franco, Michaela, Colwyn, Elliott & Jordan came from Ottawa. They chose Point Prim Lighthouse because they read it was the oldest brick lighthouse in Canada. They liked viewing how the lightkeeper lived and were fascinated with the fish oil lamps and our beautiful Fresnel lens. They enjoyed the informative story boards. – Katelyn
