Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest province, is close to Nova Scotia and certainly worth a visit. Vicki had read Anne of Green Gables in preparation, and then all of Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne novels, and more, so we had to go. We were two days there, partly driving the pretty island, partly visiting the several Anne of Green Gables sites. Among other things, we were struck by how much PEI reminded us of New Zealand.
One of many beautiful churches on the island

Sea farming all around the island

Other kinds of farming too; PEI has three
industries, I think: farming, shellfish farming,
and Anne of Green Gables


One of many little fishing coves

This aqua-farm had a retail outlet, from which I
got some wonderful, large oysters and some very
fresh mussels for seafood feasts the next few nights

Us, at the dunes on the north (east?) end of the


Standard PEI lighthouse

But here, at the farthest north we'd get, the foliage
was beginning to change

And so, after a day with Anne, we headed back
over the impressive Confederation Bridge, to New
Brunswick and then Maine, and the leaves
