I'm back from PEI- windblown, sunburned, tired and happy. It was a great time of early morning walks along the shore, afternoon swims, and late night campfires. Here are a few pictures from the beach of the campground where we stayed:
On Saturday morning, two of my sisters and I left the campsite and drove over to Dalvay By-The-Sea. This is the hotel where the exterior shots of the White Sands Hotel in the Anne of Green Gables miniseries and in the T.V. show "Road To Avonlea" were filmed. In the first miniseries, it is where Anne participates in a poetry recital. Also, the scene in the A.of G.G. sequel where Anne meets Morgan Harris for the first time was filmed at Dalvay:
Anne's manuscript blows away.
The hotel was built in 1895 as a summer home for Alexander MacDonald, a wealthy businessman, and is made of the local red sandstone. It's a gorgeous building, and the grounds are every bit as beautiful. We spent around an hour wandering about, and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Here's a few of our pictures:

All in all, it was a lovely long weekend, and I'm already looking forward to going again.
