Province Capital: Charlottetown
Below pics are from visit to Prince Edward Island in December 2007
Confederation Bridge - The longest bridge over ice covered waters in the world, joining Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island and Cape Jourimain, New-Brunswick. The 12.9 km structure was completed in May 1997 and carries two lanes of traffic. You have to pay to depart PEI but not to go on.
Windsurfing - Canadian style.
|A nice landscape view on PEI. I can just imagine Anne walking across the hill.
Lucy Maud Montgomery's birth home. It, along with most things on PEI was closed.
|They have an Avonlea 'village'. This, too, was closed. They do reenactments.
Luckily, Green Gables wasn't totally closed. It was closed on Saturday, though. I thought that was odd - open Sun - Thurs.
|Even though Green Gables was closed, there was a sign to feel free to walk around. So I did.
This has nothing to do with any thing - I just thought it was a great house.
|I took this picture of the North Shore on Saturday. Remember what this looks like - there will be a quiz later.
I kept looking and looking because I just KNEW there should be seals there, and I finally found this guy.
|Yes, PEI has several lighthouses, since it is an island.
So, this was taken on Sunday. Notice the weather difference from the earlier picture? I told you there was a quiz.
|Red clay dirt. Similar to Georgia. Odd...
Green Gables on Sunday. They had it nicely decorated for Christmas.
|In the museum was several journal extracts.
|Green Gables... well, that was the main reason I was here!
Yes, they were open, but I was the only one there, so I got a private tour.
|The snow was coming down pretty good.
The dining room.
|Living room - you can see the dining room through the door.
|They had it decorated in period Christmas decorations. Right down to a gift from Gilbert to Anne.
I can imagine Anne looking out the window to see who was arriving. (Yes, I know she was fictional.)
|The kitchen, again. The original part of the house actually ended with the dark floor area. The 2nd generation added the other part.
An amusement park!! Yep - closed. I need to come back in the summer.
