Day Two in Charlottetown

It was raining again today but we weren't going to let that stop us from enjoying our holiday.  We started off today checking out the quilt shop in Charlottetown.  It was hidden away in a small mall so we missed it the first time and thank goodness for the GPS, it took us through a residential area and back around again.  It was a great little shop with a few maritime fat quarters so I picked up about 10.  It was her 24th anniversary so I got a 24% discount which was really great.

We then headed for Green Gables the home of Anne of Green Gables the imaginary character from Lucy Maude Montgomery books.  Ann was there helping us enjoy our time.


It was hard for L M sometimes to forget that Anne was imaginary because she wrote about her so much.

Anne's room.
She told us that it was neat and that she made her room.

We left Green Gables and found a nice cafe for lunch.  We thought we would like to go to Cavandish Beach but it was a Provincial Park and we had to pay to go in just to see the beach so we turned around and headed for the town of O'Leary.

There was a quilt shop here and the owner was so nice.  The fabric was very reasonable and lots of PEI fabrics for my quilt. 

Lynda asked her what she thought we should see while we were in the area and she suggested a museum.

The Canadian Potato Museum.

Prince Edward Island is very famous for their potatoes.  They are the largest potato growing area in Canada.  The earth here is red and great for growing potatoes.

There is nothing like having your picture taken with the world's largest potato.

Tomorrow we will tour the Eastern side of the Island.
