For the last 2 weeks, I have been on holidays. Hubby and I went to PEI with My Brother-in-law, his girlfriend, and the 2 kids. Unfortunately we didnt' get to travel around the island as I wanted to, but stayed around Cavendish. I was there around 20 years ago, and wow has it become commercial!
We camped at a really nice campground called Marco Polo Land. I also went hoping to enjoy my first Lobster. I didn't like it, but hubby said it was over-cooked. I had hoped to go to a really awesome place in New Rustico, but the plans were changed. Don't get me started on that..... I might start to rant lol
So instead, I will provide some pics of my time there
The original Green Gables House that inspired LM Montgomery.
House is now decorated per book.
Top of the stars - Anne's Room
Dress Mathew gave her...puffed sleves
The slate the broke over Gil's head
What is left of the house LM Montgomery actually grew up in
It was her grandparents house.
Worth the $4 to walk the grounds IMO
MacNeils Pond - Lake of shinning waters
Dunes on beach
I did visit a few other places in Cavendish including The Village of Avonlea, and Sandspit Amusement Park.
On the way home, Hubby and I made a short stopover in Quebec City. Of the entire trip, I think Quebec City was the best....for many reasons.
One of the gates
The driver and horse that did your tour - Phillip & Sunny
Not a cheap tour, but worth it.
The amazing restaurant we ate at. Would recommend in an instant.
On the stitching front, I have not stitched much since getting together with Dani & Rebecca. I took stitching with me, but either didn't have time, or didn't feel like it. I have stitched since I have returned, and will post some pics soon.
On a side note, I grew up thinking Quebec was full of rude and ignorant people. This trip to Quebec was nothing, and I mean nothing like that. These people are very friendly and kind. I not once had an issue with the language bearier... I don't remember much french from High School. If you have been wanting to visit this beautiful old city and are nervous... DON'T BE! I would go back in a heart beat!!
