But since I’d just come home from a vacation–and had a ton of photos–it seemed like a great opportunity to write about my trip to Canada.
I got a late start on the challenge, and I didn’t blog on the weekends. So instead of thirty-one posts, this one is my twentieth for the series.
It’s also the last. That’s kinda bittersweet, isn’t it?
To complete the journey, here’s a brief recap of the trip with links to the individual posts.
You can also begin with the first post then follow the link included near the end of each one to “hop” to the next.
On Our Way & Lighthouses
We visited the lighthouses at North Point and West Point but didn’t get to go inside either one. The tourist season had ended a week or two before we arrived.
The Bottle House Museum
Edouard Arsenault, the last resident keeper at the Cape Egmont Lighthouse, built a six-gable house, a chapel, and a tavern out of approximately 30,000 bottles.
It’s an unusual museum, and certainly worth seeing.
A replica of the lighthouse is also on the grounds, and the landscaping is lovely.
Walks along the beach. Polished stones. Sea glass.
Breathtaking sunsets and restful evenings.
We stayed at a cottage located near the island’s west shore and enjoyed every moment.
A highlight of our trip, especially for me, was our drive to the North Shore. I loved seeing the places that inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery to write Anne of Green Gables and her other stories.
You know how vacation days tend to fly by, and how on the last day you find yourself wondering where the time went?
That wasn’t true of our time on PEI.
Instead it was like time slowed down. Perhaps it reflects the slower pace of life we enjoyed while on the island.
I’ve had a great time reliving my days in PEI with you. I hope you’ve had fun, too.
