The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Avonlea, Prince Edward Island.
The previous destination on my virtual hike was Caribou, Nova Scotia.
I started by catching a ferry at Caribou to cross to 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 :-).
I then headed toward the north side of the island to the Avonlea Village area in Cavendish.
There I went to the Green Gables Visitor Centre.
The house shown here was built in the 1830’s for relatives of Lucy Maud Montgomery who wrote Anne of Green Gables, and was bought in the 1930’s by the Canadian Government for use as a museum. 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.
