Prince Edward Island PEI
Looking out at the Gulf of the St. Lawrence from Cavendish Beach in PEI's National Park. The park hugs the northern shore of the Island and runs just about as deep as the beach. Cavendish is a very small village but is known for the author Lucy Maud Montgomery and her most popular story of Anne of Green Gabels. Lucy grew up here and her cousin's farm house that she spent time at in her child hood is restored and available for public viewing (see next post). I was never a fan of the show but its one of my Mother's favourites so the pictures of Green Gables are for her :)
When I look at this picture now it doesn't look as cold as it seemed when I was taking it. It wasn't cold by any means but the wind was cool. I can't get over the amazing scenery here, the whole Island seems like it could be fictitious as most houses are very well kept,rolling hills with farmers fields, and the warm maritime friendliness. I would consider having a vacation home here if I could ever afford my first house ! Like Blanc-Sablon I will have to come back and really experience it in the summer.
If it wasn't for the snow on the rock's you wouldn't be able to tell that this was taken in the winter. Soil all around the Island is a rich red colour. It is from the high iron oxide content in the soil and rocks (iron oxide aka RUST). For some aerial views from around the Island click here.
North Rustico docks. I have never seen a lobster trap before so I got my fill of em in this picture.
Not much I can say about Lobster's but if you want more info go to the Wikipedia.
