Victoria by the Sea

Today I am taking you on a tour of one of my favorite little villages on the Island. This charming little village is Victoria by the sea.(I even love the name). This litle village comes alive in the summer. It has lovely older homes like the one above.
Charming little gardens
lovely antique shop called The Coach House
cute little information centre by the sea
a lighthouse to tour
 
There are several charming little craft shops in the village
everyone loves this chocolate factory
cute little veranda's to sit on
another charmer
I love to see white linens blowing on the line
afternoon tea at Mrs.Proffitt's
a nearby garden at the Reid House Antiques-another great place to visit

I love this house too and it has a lovely view of the bay
Their little guest cottage-you know how I love those!
The view of the bay
Mrs.Proffitt's Tearoom is insde the Orient Hotel- It has great food and pretty china and you know how much better tea tastes in a pretty teacup!
A little icecream shop out back
perky colors

many homes have veranda's to sit and watch the summer people go by etc.
There is a summer theatre here as well
another charming B&B and evening dining room
I love to walk up and down the streets taking everything in.
It was low tide when we were there but still beautiful!
cute little playhouse
sailboats in the distance
The Landmark Cafe is a great place to eat. I love to sit out on their new deck on a sunny day.
another little backyard guest house
Every little village has it's churches-this is across the bay
the lighthouse again
This old church on the way has been painted some interesting colors
All this touring of Victoria by the sea has made me want to hop in the car and take a drive up again(it is about a 30 min drive from here) but I better get some work done here first and wait for a sunny day!
I hope you enjoyed touring Victoria by the sea with me.

Take care,

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn
Oh I enjoyed the tour of that charming little town! Everything looks like a fairy tale. I have PEI twice in my life, once when I was about 10 and once when I was 25I remember it being charming but I'm sure it's even more so now. I'd like to take a trip up there one summer again.

What a wonderful tour Carolyn. A very charming town. I really liked the red church. Makes you kind of wonder what the services are like.
Maybe one day. You certainly have given me some dreams to think about.

I did love visiting this beautiful litle village with you. I'm grateful that you would take me there, a place that I will never likely see in person. But your photos made me feel that I was there.
Hugs,
June
