Hello again my friends..
Hope all is well with you ..
This is post number 2 on our little vacation to Prince Edward Island..
I have too many photos, I am afraid but there is a so much to see even if it is a small place.. smile..
After we left Victoria by the Sea we started up Rte. 13 towards Cavendish..
As you will see this is mostly farm land ...
They grow a lot of potatoes on Prince Edward Island...
Field after field of them..
Then of course there are the dairy farms...
They were for individual farms..
A lot of lovely quaint churches and some much bigger ones, too..
Beautiful old barns...
And hay bales..
I could not get over the abundance of Queen Anne's Lace ..
Sometimes there were fields of it and all along the ditches and beaches..
I think Anne must of loved it and had it planted everwhere.. grin..
So many huge farm houses and all in gorgeous condition..
Almost all of the farms you see are very spiffy and one wishes that you could be invited in ... smile..
Many different grains growing...
The closer one gets to Cavandish then the scenery begins to change from farm land to fishing villages and beaches with cottages...
In the distance is the ocean and soybeans and such growing there, too..
After we arrived in Cavendish we went and found our little vintage cabin that we had rented for a few days..
It was rather warm so we decided after unloading the car that we would go see if Anne's Museum was open...
We would get our supper later in the evening..
We found it in French River...
Can you see the closed sign..
We were just a few minutes too late but that was all right as it was really Anne's house that I wanted to take my time to see..
We went around and took a few pics, though..
This is where L. M. Montgomery, author of the world famous novel Anne of Green Gables was inspired to write many novels and it is the setting for Anne's Lake of Shining Waters..
The house was built in 1872 and is still in the family after over two hundred and thirty years..
If they are open you can take a lovely carriage ride for an hour and a half to a beach ...
Wouldn't that be fun?
Another time, I guess..
We decided to go to New Glasgow for our supper..
At the famous P. E. I. Preserve Company..
The locals call it the jam company.. smile..
It was delicious !!
Terry had a seafood type casserole dish along with fresh veggies and such and I had Codfish Potato Cakes with Caesar Salad and Chow..
And a lovely pot of tea..
We did not try the desserts as we had plenty.. smile..
Then back to the cabin...
This was only the first day and we were tired..
Not as young as we used to be, eh?
Sorry this little trip is taking so many posts but I want you to see the Island as we did...
Anne has her lamp lit in her bedroom...
Tis night time on the Island so we will say good night for now and see you next post where I will try not to bore you all..
