I found this photo in my PEI Archives from September 2015 pilgrimage to PEI. With a little photo effect ambiance added, it is not hard to identify myself with Emily Of New Moon...Rosemary

"I b'lieve it's going to rain," said Cousin Sophia. "We have had an awful lot of rain this fall already. It's going to make it awful hard for people to get their roots in. It wasn't so in my young days. We gin'rally had beautiful Octobers then. But the seasons is altogether different now from what they used to be." Clear across Cousin Sophia's doleful voice cut the telephone bell. Gertrude Oliver answered it. "Yes—what? What? Is it true—is it official? Thank you—thank you."

I must say that I was quite surprised at how small the lighthouses were on PEI. Compared to our lighthouses here in NC, they seemed rather like pygmies. How functional they were is a puzzle, but must have been so. The lighthouses, small as they were, still provided a romantic ambiance to the Island Scenes. They were also very hard to locate as they were not well signed and sometimes sitting in the middle of a pasture. I don't remember the name of this lighthouse.

So, I missed the LMM Conference in Charlottetown this year due to work end of the fiscal year responsibilities By all accounts it was a good conference, the theme being LMM and Gender. I'm so sad and sorry to have missed it.
So today, on my USA holiday of July 4th, I took myself and my Anne doll back to Abegweit in my mind. I've taken my sunflower field photo (in Park Corner September last) and the photo that I took of the Anne bedroom at Green Gables and I printed them to wood panels. Then, I set up my photo shoot and made a postcard.
