This is the heart of Green Gables country, the famous books that were written by Lucy Maud Montgomery about Anne and her life on Prince Edward Island in the 1910 time period. Susan has always enjoyed the stories and this is the second time that she has visited this special area.

On Sunday, Susan, Andrea, Brenda and Connie went to Green Gables and spent the day. They had a great time and the weather was sunny and cool. The day at Green Gables included a fashion show for 1908, meeting all the characters in the books--all the actors acted like it was 1908, visiting the school, church, and other sites in the books--all with the sun shining brightly. Also some dancing and games were played--again all from 1908.

On Monday, we took a drive along the red dirt roads of PEI to see the sights. Along the way, near New London, PEI, we saw the cottages with the name--"A View to Sea"--they faced the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Later at a boat dock we watched the boatmen unload mussels from the fishing vessel named--Knotty Hooker"--one of the best boat names we have seen. We stopped for coffee at a small place and were served wonderful coffee in the most beautifully crafted mugs--each of a diffent shape and size. We asked who made them and it is Barbara Graham. So we went looking for Barbara Graham and found her at the New London dock--but she did not have any mugs. But a new batch was coming out of the klin tomorrow--so we will return.

That evening we went to the Ross Family Ceilidh at the Stanley Bridge Hall. The family does folk music from PEI, step dancing and singing. We got front row seats--because no one else wanted them. It was a great evening.
