When we have each other, we have everything.
Prince Edward Island, Canada
Our last trip of the summer was to Prince Edward Island, Canada for Libby's official birthday celebration! What a beautiful island it was! The red sandstone cliffs jutting into the ocean coupled with rolling hills of farm land made it the perfect destination for great drone footage! Our main mode of transportation were bikes on the Confederation Trail. This trail has over 200 km of crushed gravel and keeps bikers off the main roads. Ben and I were only there for the portion from Tignish to Charlottetown while the rest of the group (Scott, Libby, Tom, Anne, Margo, and Ann) continued to complete the rest of the trail. We biked each day, but took some time to savor the seafood at many restaurants and sight see. My favorite location was Cavendish. Cavendish is the home of Anne of Green Gables. I loved the Kevin Sullivan production of Anne of Green Gables and knew that I wanted to see what I could when we arrived to PEI. We were able to see the home of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables. I learned that Anne's story is very much based on Lucy's life. Both orphans raised by elderly individuals and larger than life imaginations. We saw the real Green Gables homestead. This farm is what inspired the Green Gables in the book, although it was not used in the filming of the Kevin Sullivan film due to high tourist traffic. This trip was a great way to be active and catch up with family and friends at the same time.
