Virtual Hike to Avonlea, PEI

The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Avonlea, Prince Edward Island.

There is a bridge across to the island, but you cannot walk across the bridge. Therefore according to the Virtual Hike rules, you must take the ferry :-).

It has since been refurbished to resemble the home from the book. The ruins of the home where Montgomery grew up is also nearby and is part of the overall historic park.

Now it is time to head back to the ferry and visit another place in Nova Scotia where my ancestors live.
