Low Tide at Point Prim

When on PEI, it's almost required to go to Green Gables Heritage Place, which is part of PEI National Park.

The house on which L.M.Montgomery (who lived nearby with her grandparents) based Anne's house is furnished for the period. Excerpts from her books and journals are on display, giving insight to the author. We explored the Haunted Wood and Lover's Lane, both of which are featured in the books.

We lunched at Razzy's Beach House on a fish sandwich and a burger.

Diesel was $1.37 a liter today.

We visited three shops. The Master's Pieces shop is contained in just one room of the owner's house out in the boonies. It's so small she carries only some fair trade batiks and items she makes from them - no thread and I am out! Island Fabrics has a limited selection of quilting fabrics but plenty of thread. Quilter's B is also small, but has more of a selection.

A farm market provided some of the famous new potatoes and a yellow zucchini.

We drove out to Prim's Point to see the lighthouse, the oldest on PEI and the only round brick lighthouse in Canada.

Note for the day: Food prices are also very high. Green and yellow beans in season wered $3.99 a pound, for example.
