Cape Jourimain Lighthouse, New Brunswick

This light is located on a small island at the New Brunswick end of the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island. It is located in the Cape Jourimain National Wildlife Area. It was built in 1870 and has been inactive since 1997 (the same year that the Confederation Bridge was opened). It is accessible via a nature trail in the Wildlife Area and there is a fee for entering. There is a drive underway to restore it. (Note: The curved, 12.9 kilometre (8 mile) long Confederation Bridge is the longest in the world crossing ice-covered water, it is one of Canada’s top engineering achievements of the 20th century). Photos taken in Sept. 2009.
