Island Country Days

Hello everyone,

   I hope your week is going well.

      Over the summer we have enjoyed
       touring around our beautiful Island 
  and I usually take a few shots of
things that catch my eye.

                                                                        I love old red barns.
                                                                     The sun was setting behind this
                                                                     red barn as we drove by so I
                                                                     had to stop and capture it!

                                                               I don't think you could get more country
                                                               then this ! Reminds me of Mathew in Anne
                                                               of Green Gables.

            The famous Green Gables draws Anne fans
from all over the world.
                                                                      A beautiful sunny day in Panmure Island.
                                                              Evening light on a field of sheep.
                                                              In the past couple of weeks the
                                                              farmers started to harvest the grain.

                                                                           A lone sheep having a rest.

       A field of shorn sheep.

                                                                     Having grown up on a farm I enjoy
                                                                     seeing fields of cows.
                                                                         An antique car in Victoria by the sea.
                                                                        A mare and foal.
               A farmhouse by the sea. Love that they
                 can watch sailboats go by in the summer.

In the wild.
Forgotten dreams. 
                                                                  What would a drive in the country be
                                                                   without a summer or fall picnic.

Well, our little country day tour
is coming to a close but first let's
enjoy the sun set over the bridge
to the Island.

I hope you enjoyed an Island
Country  Day Tour.

Carolyn, your pictures are enchanting! I love the red barns too. My father loved old red barns which is no doubt where I got my love for them. The sheep are adorable and the shots of all the animals makes me think of when I lived on my grandparents' farm. I really miss those days and I'm glad I have my memories. They are precious! Have a lovely day.

Dear Carolyn,
Thank you so much for the Island tour! I visited last year in September and climbed that little lighthouse in Victoria by the Sea! I recognize several of those homes and places, and can't wait to come back again! Your photos are stunning. Thanks again! Sandi
