It was a cloudy day when I visited this lighthouse on the coast of Prince Edward Island, Canada. I climbed the stairs to the top for a view of the beach below. From the ground there was a boardwalk leading to the water. These pictures reminded me of this week’s theme.
I was thinking about bright and sunny places that I’ve visited, and I decided on these pictures from Prince Edward Island, Canada for the Where’s my backpack? theme this week.
This is a place I’d dreamed about ever since reading the Anne of Green Gables stories, and I was so happy to have the chance to visit! It was quite easy to get around, whether by car, bicycle or on foot. And the best part was that I had enough time to thoroughly explore the island. Here’s some of what I saw.
It’s common to grow up in a place and not see many of the things that visitors make a point of seeing. I’m saying this because I grew up in the Boston area, and my only trips to Maine were to Kittery and York, towns near Maine’s southern border. I had also been to Freeport once to shop at the L.L. Bean store. So I thought it was a good idea to visit to Maine this past July to see Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.
There are many things to see on Prince Edward Island that don’t include Anne of Green Gables. Although I was there because I wanted to visit all of the Anne (and L. M. Montgomery) places, I also found beautiful beaches, lighthouses, and towns.
