Good Evening everyone..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth...
Terry and I did go to the Island as I mentioned last post..
I thought perhaps you dear hearts who follow the blog would like to go along with us.. smile..
This will take a few posts as I kind of went camera crazy but perhaps it will be a neat way for some of you who long to take a little trip there...
We started out around ten in the morning and arrived at the Confederation Bridge before noon..
We only live an hour and a half away from here..
It is an amazing piece of workmanship and is the longest bridge in the world crossing ice-covered water..
It takes about 12 minutes to cross in a vehicle...
There was a little sea gull welcoming us across..
I didn't even know I took his pic till I was looking at the photos later.. grin..
Well, we are almost there..
Such a beautiful and colorful place is Prince Edward Island..
Notice the color of the earth...
A little tourist town of shops awaits as you get off the bridge and there are lots of lovely homemades and such.. smile..
After a little shopping and we picked up a Tim's coffee to go..
We had a little picnic with us for our lunch as there was so much to do and see before we headed to our cabin..
As I had said in my last post that Victoria by the Sea would be our first stop..
And it was..
I love this little village and it has been a favourite of ours since the 1970's when we used to go there with our kids ...
VICTORIA BY THE SEA...
So lovely and quaint..
Lots of sea food..
You know me and sea food..
Actually, we both love it...
The houses here are adorable and every one is different and beautiful in it's own individual way...
Here are a few photos of cottages and shops that Victoria is made up of..
My favourite one, of course..
Do you suppose it is because of the books?? lol
Such an interesting and artsy little place..
There were also antiques shops, bed and breakfast and such...
A lot of these homes are year round and I wonder what it would be like on a blowy Winter's day??
Probably, the same as it is here in St. Martins.. smile..
It is at the northern end of the province and that is where a girl named Anne hangs out.. grin..
I will share more of the trip next time..
Yes, we did visit Anne's house and all that goes with it but there is so much more in P. E. I...
Terry and I are older now and enjoy different things then others with young families..
But hopefully you will find it interesting, too..
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed this little visit to such a lovely place..
I am looking forward to your little notes and I will try to answer any questions you have..
I wanted to let you know that Jared is doing well in China and having a wonderful time..
Thank you for praying for him..
Our daughter and family arrived in Dallas, Texas this morning and are attending a Youth Congress in Oklahoma City...
What a world we live in, eh?
So different from the days when Anne enjoyed her
Lake of Shining Waters... smile
