OK! I should have blogged this trip last month but I was soooo overwhelmed by the amount of pictures I took that I didn't know where to begin. In September Lee and Emily and Emily's sister Mickey and her husband Pete took a trip up the Maine coast, all the way to Prince Edward Island, and invited our family to come along. We left friday morning, Sept. 10 and were back home by Tuesday, Sept. 14. It was a world wind tour but I think I've got it pretty well documented in the following pictures.Well, here goes...
Sweet children, they don't realize we're just getting started
Victor with Emily and Jack
We drove all the way to the border town of Cailus, Me. This is where we stayed the first night. We took this picture the next morning before we crossed the border.
We got there after the tide came in so we didn't get the full experience. Apparently it is quite a sight to watch all that water come rushing thru.
Need I say more?
This bridge is 13 miles long but still faster than the ferry you used to have to take to get to Prince Edward Island
The reason we made the trip, to see all things Anne. Starting with the resting place of her creator, L.M. Montgomery
Had to get a picture of the dress with puffed sleeves (all you Anne enthusiasts will understand)
Where else could we be but Lover's Lane. I must have been having a good time because this picture was my idea
I couldn't resist this shot especially after reading the following......
They had quotes from L.M.M all around the spot where the house she grew up in used to stand. She loved growing up there and reading her quotes was like hearing Anne speaking.
We couldn't resist the gift shops, Ella was not the only one to get into the spirit
They can totally pull this look off
Sipping some Rasberry Cordial
Later that night we went to the National Park in Cavendish and enjoyed romping around on the red sand beaches
In a couple of hours the hole we are standing under will be under water.
You can't come to Maine without going to see Eartha. She resides at the DeLorme Map store in Freeport, ME
The Portland Lighthouse is another must see. You can also see the original lighthouse on the horizon in this picture
