I am firm in the belief that pictures often tell a story better than words, however artfully strung together. Our visit to Prince Edward Island was magical in more ways than I can articulate, but surely one of the loveliest experiences was our trip back in time at the Green Gables Heritage Place in Cavendish. The Campbell property, where author Lucy Maud Montgomery spent much of her childhood with her aunt and uncle, inspired the setting for Anne’s story. If you’ve watched the beautifully interpreted Netflix series, Anne with an E, you may find these photos familiar. In all honesty, I somehow never read the Anne of Green Gables books; but now, having learned more about the prolific writer—arguably PEI’s most famous citizen—and having seen this captivating place, they have jumped to the top of my queue.
Next time… dunes and lighthouses.
