Exploring Green Gables, Cavendish

Today, we explored the Cavendish National Historic Site, Avonlea, and the site of Green Gables. Eva even got her own copy of Anne of Green Gables embossed with L.M. Montgomery’s signature.

Anne resonated around the world, with over 50 million books sold, numerous accolades for her author, and the distinction of being both a Canadian and Japanese cultural icon.

Covehead Harbour Lighthouse

After eating at Richard’s Fresh Seafood this evening in Covehead Harbour, we walked about 2 minutes down the road and explored the site of the Covehead Harbour Lighthouse. The sun was descending low in the sky and there was such a beautiful golden hour glow forming when I took this photo.

Built in 1967 and located beside the entrance to Covehead Bay, this lighthouse is located inside the Prince Edward Island National Park. There is a plaque on the side of the lighthouse describing the Yankee Gale and remembering those who perished in the storm. There is a path across the dunes to the beach. Enjoy a nice walk but confine your swimming to the superivised areas for your safety. The undertow can be strong, dangerous and unpredictable.
