Today we drove to the North Cape/Western portion of the island. We stopped and ate lunch at a road side table. It was a "hot" day for here today. I think it reached 80 degrees, but that was only for about 2 hours. I had my jacket on most of the day. Monet was in heaven out in the open field. We let her run loose and she ran all over the place.
Most of the houses had stacks and stacks of wood. I think it must get cold here!! (ha)
It's hard to describe how beautiful this place is. It has such a rural, relaxed and simple feeling. No high-rises, no billboards and, really no junk. The houses are spread out and there are crops being grown all along the ocean border on the island. These windmills are scattered throughout the island and, believe it or not, add a sense of peacefulness to the area. It appears the Canadians have some things figured out better than we do.
Tomorrow we will hit the Cavendish area which is centered in the middle of the island on the northern shore. We understand that it is pretty commercial but that is where Anne of Green Gables was written and where the author lived and was born.
We really appreciate all of you who have been reading and responding to the blog. It has helped us feel connected to home. Love all
