The beautiful Anne of Green Gables setting in Cavendish

The beautiful Anne of Green Gables setting in Cavendish

The natural beauty surrounding the Anne of Green Gables setting could inspire any writer. Lucy Maud Montgomery used this lovely setting as the centerpiece of her novel about Anne. I imagine this area with no tourists. I see peaceful days filled with times of introspection and memories. God’s creativity seems to flow from every corner. Click here to see a short devotional.

“Are you so dull?” He [Jesus] asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him ‘unclean’? For it doesn’t go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out of his body.” He went on: “What comes out of a man is what makes him ‘unclean’ (Mark 7:18-20, paraphrased).

Lover’s Lane

20140825_103528

When you read Anne of Green Gables you will find tales of Lover’s Lane. David seemed especially happy to find that it really exists. Mark Twain called the novel “the sweetest creation of childlife yet written.” And I agree with that assessment one hundred percent. But Anne grows up. Lover’s Lane is a popular site, visited by hundreds of thousands every year.

The Anne of Green Gables House in Cavendish will stir memories of the story of Anne’s childhood as well as your own. Lucy Maud Montgomery gave us a little slice of heaven with her creation of Anne of Green Gables. The story lives on in the delightful grounds and museum on Prince Edward Island.

Here I am in front of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s typewriter! Winners of the contest are Donna Schlacter and Gary Myers, they each get a copy of my latest book, The Miracle of You. They both correctly answered that I was in the Lucy Maud Montgomery Museum. Imagine how difficult it would have been to write a book like Anne Of Green Gables without a delete key. Those were the good old days, back when writers had to do everything manually. NOT!!

David and I watched the Anne of Green Gables movie before we left on this vacation. Truly, the house looks exactly like it did in the movie. We went inside to look. It seems that Lucy Maud Montgomery never actually lived in the house, but enjoyed writing about it. Here’s what it looks like inside.

Before we crossed the Confederation Bridge to get to Prince Edward Island we made a few picturesque stops along the way. I couldn’t resist this lovely lighthouse. We saw several lighthouses on this trip. I’ve always been fascinated by them. After we left this site, we began the eight miles over Confederation Bridge. This bridge is an engineering feat.

The Confederation Bridge spans the Abegweit Passage of Northumberland Strait. It links Prince Edward Island with mainland New Brunswick, Canada. Before its official naming, Prince Edward Islanders often referred to the bridge as the “Fixed Link”.

Here’s a picture of David standing in front of these amazing Flowerpot Rocks at Hopewell Cape. The Bay of Fundy tides are the highest on earth. They rise and fall at least fifty feet, making for a dramatic change in the view of the Flowerpot Rocks.

Whatever your plan for the day, whether it’s canoeing or walking the beach, it’s a good idea to keep your eye on this clock. Otherwise, the tides could surprise you! The way it works is that twice a day one-hundred-billion tons of water flow into the bay of Fundy. This creates the phenomenal Fundy Tides, which overpower the rivers flowing into the Bay of Fundy and reverse their direction two times a day. You can actually watch the gradual rise and fall of the tides, an average change of six to eight feet per hour.

Click Here to watch a video of changes as the tide comes in. Note these wonderful rock formations, the Flowerpot Rocks at Hopewell Cape.

Nova Scotia

20140822_100529

My husband and I are on an adventure in Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia means New Scotland in Latin. For this reason, I was not surprised to see men in kilts. The delicious history of Nova Scotia rivals tales of Treasure Island, Titanic, and Pirates of the Carribean. The province was first named in the 1621 Royal Charter granting the right to settle lands including modern Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and the Gaspé peninsula to Sir William Alexander in 1632.

Halifax is the capital city of Nova Scotia with just over 390,000 occupants. December 1917 saw one of the greatest disasters in Canadian history, when the SS Mont-Blanc, a French cargo ship carrying munitions, collided with the Belgian Relief vessel SS Imo in “The Narrows” between upper Halifax Harbour and Bedford Basin. The resulting explosion, the Halifax Explosion, devastated the Richmond District of Halifax, killing approximately 2,000 people and injuring nearly 9,000 others. The blast was the largest artificial explosion before the development of nuclear weapons.
