P is for PEI

Prince Edward Island, or PEI is a Canadian province on the East coast of Canada. It is an island connected by a bridge to New Brunswick. It is a laid-back place where you can enjoy fresh mussels, lobster and other types of seafood, walk along red sand beaches and even re-live favorite childhood books about Anne of Green Gables. Here are some of my highlights of my visit to PEI.

PEI & Anne of Green Gables

Ninety percent of the visitors who come to Prince Edward Island make a pilgrimage to the site of Anne of Green Gables and pay homage to the author Lucy Maude Montgomery. Much of the setting and the people were based around her own images of PEI its people. A Canadian national park now takes care of this site.

I remember reading the book when I was young, but the details do escape me. But there is a magic to the book and today, wandering through the house and walking along Lover’s Lane, the Haunted Woods and the Canvendish beach. Here are some of my favourite pictures of my own magical visit to this treasure of PEI.
