After a light breakfast we drove into Cavendish to the Anne of Green Gables Home. It is just a couple hundred yards from the main stop light in town but with a few planted and grazing acres it was a very pastoral setting. It's a storybook Victorian house. The original house was built in 1850, a second section added to the first floor in 1870 and the second floor added in 1910. The pictures describe it better than I can.
We met Anne and Don at the Confederation Theatre in Charlottetown to attend the 2 pm performance or "Anne of Green Gables, the Musical." We had excellent seats and it was a delightful musical. It was the last day of the Canadian Summer Games in Charlottetown, but in spite of the traffic and the rain from approaching Danny, we managed to find a lobster house for dinner. We enjoyed sharing stories about our families, churches, musical activities, etc for the remainder of the day.
