|Bottle Houses, PEI, July 2008|
Too many Americans (as in "people living in the United States") think "America" refers to the United States. However, the word "America" can mean the United States, North America, Central America, and South America.
So today, what may be my only post on Canada, just because I don't have too many digital pictures of that wonderful country. Of all of Canada, PEI has a special type of beauty. It's a slow beauty. It doesn't hit you in the face. Instead, it calmly waits for you to come and appreciate it. And, if you are a fan of the book Anne of Green Gables, visiting PEI is a must.
My spouse and I visited PEI briefly in 2008 and I want so much to go back.
To get to Prince Edward Island, you must either
b. Take a ferry; or
c. Drive (or take a bus).
Once you touch land, it's time to exhale and relax.
Visit a potato farm. Eat some diver scallops. Buy some crafts, such as these quilted potholders I've displayed in my living room since this trip. Drink some JJ Stewart soda.
Or some raspberry cordial. (Don't know about now, but Cows made some wicked good, as we say here, ice cream, back then.).
But if there was one thing I would recommended to the visitor, it would be visiting the Bottle Houses.
I have to admit, writing this post brought back such good memories.
Tomorrow, Sunday, is a day off. I usually blog about the United States Civil War on Sunday. Join me again Monday for the letter Q.
