Touring The Island



                                                                         Hello everyone,

                                                    Last week my husband and I took a mini
                                                   vacation and went to the western end of
                                                   the Island......beautiful Prince Edward Island.
                                                       We drove by the Bideford Parsonage Museum
                                                   that my friend Mildie and I had enjoyed a
                                                  tour of a few weeks ago.
                                                   Check out this beautiful video with Shelley Campbell
                                                   curator of the museum.....A Tale of Two Islands.
                                                 


                                                             This is the room that our beloved author
                                                             L.M. Montgomery slept in for the year
                                                             she had her first teaching position in
                                                             Bideford school.
                                                         
                                                              I highly recommend that you take the tour
                                                             if you are in the area as it was very
                                                             interesting.



                                                            We spent the night at the Northport Pier Inn
                                                            where every room has a beautiful water view
                                                            balcony or patio.
                                                                          The Northport marina is right next to the Inn

                                                                             

                                      Sitting on the dock of the bay....
fishing.

                                                                   Beautiful home overlooking the Mill River.

                                                   A beautiful sunrise in Northport.
      
                                                              The sunrise from our balcony.


        Sunset in Northport and area.


On the drive home we came
by Indian River Church.


This reminds me the 
The Boat Shop Restaurant by the Inn
was also very good......so check it
out too if you go take the North
Cape Drive to Northport.

Hope you will take a few minutes

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Lovely tour, Carolyn. We went as far as Mill River before turning back to go along to West Point. The Bideford Parsonage Museum is beautiful; love the gingerbread trim. I am rather smitten with yellow houses anyway. Glad you enjoyed your mini vacation.

Blessings,
Sandi

It looks so beautiful there Carolyn and I don't believe we've been to those places before. The parsonage is so beautiful with it's gingerbread trim and the hotel looks wonderful with the seaside views. Thanks for the lovely tour.
