It was 6 years ago today, June 20, 2008 that I was here on this hallowed red soil in PEI.
It was a dream come true. Robert knew I'd love it. He had visited in 1977.
Above is the birthplace of LM Montgomery, one of my absolute favourite authours.
Here is Lucy's room where she was born in 1874, 140 years ago!
Green Gables museum. This was a pretty spot, but I loved all the other spots equally as well.
All had the flavour which LM inserted into her books.
Anne's special dress from Matthew Cuthburt with the puffed sleeves.
Robert and I walking down dear lover's lane.
The cordial was delicious.
After walking through the haunted wood about 1/4 mile from Green Gables, the pathway opens into the graveyard where LM is buried.
This spot was where LM Montgomery wrote "Anne of Green Gables".
The old homestead is gone.
It was a trip I'll never forget.
