Erin and I returned to the states, in the midst of Irene's wrath, on Sunday. We were able to fly to Montreal, but drove the rest of the way from there. Vermont was a royal nightmare...driving winds, slashing rain. Fun. But looking back at the PEI pictures, reminded me of how mother nature can behave herself. Here are a few shots from our trip.
Beautiful countryside...rolling hills and patchwork farms.
Lots of 'English-style" gardens in evidence. Gorgeous layouts.

Murray Harbor, belonging to the village in which we stayed
Murray Harbor's train station. When the trains stopped running in 1989,these stations became part of the Confederation Trail. A bike rider's dream! If you look closely, you see the 'bones' of the station represented in the series 'Anne of Green Gables'.
A PEI kind of sunset
Erin and I on a beach in Cavendish. Wind was a constant in PEI.
The view from our very cute cottage
An artist working on a sand sculpture during an Open Air Art show in Charlottetown. This is the color of their sand....very red!
Stay tuned for pages from my travel journal..........
