Just look at those gorgeous gladiolas and those huge carrots and to the left you will see a sheepskin for sale , many years ago we bought two here at this market and they are still great.
This young lady was selling fresh lettuce , the bags contained a variety of different types of greens and even included some nasturtiums so I bought a bag and we enjoyed it with our salad . She was also selling some hand made items as well as other things. The little child there doesn't look too happy , probably bored .
Now this young lady had several gorgeous quilted wall hangings for sale , so unique and her own designs and she told me she does these on a 40 year old White sewing machine , just incredible . Aren't the colors vibrant. I'll show you one more of her work as I am sure you will love it as well.
What do you think , she has talent doesn't she !
I really enjoyed our time at the market I could show you more photos of what was for sale but I would rather share a little of the island with you , after all it is beautiful too. There is a peace and tranquility about PEI , the rolling hills and farm land and then the ocean and beaches to make this a tourist paradise ,I just know you want to see some pictures right ,good as I have some great photos to share.
I wonder how many of you can guess where this picture is taken , oh I bet you can guess straight off .
Oh I heard you , yes you are right this is the famous home of Anne of Green Gables , we stopped there and had a stroll around the property ,I love those books so this brought back wonderful memories..
Now it wouldn't be PEI if I didn't share some of the eroding red cliffs along the shore , I just barely captured the sailboat as it was sailing by the cliffs .PEI is famous for its red mud , the soil is used for growing potatoes as well as lots of other produce as it is such a rich soil .
The most famous beach in PEI is Cavenish which we did not stop at but there are several other gorgeous sandy beaches to see and enjoy , I believe this one was Rustico , there were a few people in the water , it was around 24 C so I would think the water would be a comfortable temperature with the sun having warmed the waters all summer .
I love the beaches of the island but to tell you the truth this is my favorite part , the rolling hills of different colors of green and sometimes gold you see everywhere , simply gorgeous , looks like a patchwork quilt don't you think .
Well I hope you enjoyed a short trip to Canada's smallest but one of the most beautiful provinces , believe me there is so much to see and do on this small island ,if you ever have the opportunity to visit be sure you do, you won't be sorry .
Thanks for the visit , hope you enjoyed your stay .
