This is a recreation of the Green Gables home. And just to check- you do know that the character of Anne (with an E) is fictional, right? But the scenery and farms that inspired the writing and the back drop of most of Montgomery's writings are real. Montgomery herself was an orphan and went to live with her Maternal grandparents the MacNeils... it is across the "haunted woods" from the home of her cousins, at Green Gables.
The home is rebuilt on Green Gables to model the farm houses of the day, and it was very easy to use or imagination seeing Anne saying her first prayer, or hiding in her upstairs room with her green hair.
Down the hill from the house is the path that lead to Lucy Maud Montgomery's home, through the "haunted forest. "
Here we are listening to the "ghosts" drinking our very tasty rasberry cordial.
Of course, we found friends on the trail.
This is a "cumuerant"(sp?), a common bird/duck up here, and we met one very personally on another trail but I will let the kids blog about "Plumber".
This is the view from Lucy Maud's house at her grandparents. Nice trees on the land and if you look closely you might find Little James.
