So, pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee and join me as we tour some of our fair Island.
A visit to one of our beaches is always first on our list. We didn't get there much this year because the weather was rather cool and wet. Love our beaches!
One of the places we have visited several times this Summer was The Prince Edward Island Preserve Co. where my favourite Tea Room is located. This charming spot is situated in New Glasgow.
Another day we drove to Summerside, which is a small city towards the western end of the Island. There we visited Spinakkers Landing, a row of brightly coloured shops on the waterfront.
They had a huge replica of a lobster trap there and my hubby got inside for me to take his picture. He's such a good sport!
More trips to the beach, where we relaxed and kicked back.
The beach is our favourite place of all. The sound of the waves and the smell of the salt air is so wonderful. I love to dig my toes in the warm sand and I wish I could bottle this feeling up and savor it all year long, especially when the ice and snow are with us.
This is where I can go and just empty my mind of all the busyness of our lives. I wish I could live there year round!
One day we went to Woodleigh Replicas, which was once a wonderful tourist attraction. It has since closed and is up for sale but we still enjoyed walking through the grounds where replicas of English castles and churches still stand. Some of the buildings allow one to walk inside. There are towers and dungeons too.
Next, we drove through French River where there is a quaint fishing village and fields of canola.
In New London, stands the birthplace of Lucy Maude Montgomery, author of the famous Anne of Green Gables stories.
Another nice day we went for a walk through what was once a children's theme park called Rainbow Valley in Cavendish.
Dappled sunlight through the trees made this almost magical. I could almost hear the ring of the children's laughter as they once played about in this beautiful area.
We went for a long walk and found a parade of Queen Anne's Lace along the trails.
Aren't they beautiful? I love their lacy loveliness.
