Charlottetown PEI 9/21

We started very early this morning for an island drive. Had a couple stops at scenic locations in a couple national parks and a preserves shop - Prince Edward Island Preserve Co. Then, we visited the house that inspired Anne of Green Gables. We also viewed a Lucy Maud Montgomery bio video and saw her grave site - very near the house.

This is mostly a farming community. Close to 2000 farms on the island - primary crop is potatoes but they also grow onions, carrots, broccoli, strawberries and other vegetables/fruits. Much of these are exported. 250 dairy farms producing milk, cream, butter and cheese. They also fish for lobster, mussels and oysters.

PEI is the smallest Canadian province. It lies between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Trivia so far today 2-W 1-L.
One more today.
