Another Old Ancestral Home

Today we left Shediac, NB (the 'Lobster Capital of the World') and drove to Little Shemogue/Murray Corners to find the graves/headstones of my grandfather's parents. The 'Murray Corners Pioneer Cemetery' was not easily seen from the road but finally after asking at a provincial park nearby, we were directed to a grassy path to an old cemetery just a short distance from the Northumberland Strait. Once there we found the headstones in fairly short order and a bunch of other relatives listed on the geneology list I had.

Then we had lunch back a bit down the road. We couldn't get there directly because of a washout of the road so had to go in about a 15km round about circuit to get there and then again to get to the bridge. We poked around Gateway Village and bought matching coral PEI zip hoodies.

The shop keeper was delighted to take our picture and told us she had a lot of sisters. Then we made our way to Cavendish using the GPS zig-zagging northward.

We reserved a 2 bedroom cottage with a pull-out sofa. It is SO cute! There is an itty bitty gas fireplace with a wall-mounted flat screen TV above it. There is a fully equipped kitchen with stove, fridge, microwave and dishwasher.

Tomorrow we'll tour Green Gables and other scenic spots in the centre of the island. Tomorrow evening we're taking in "Anne of Green Gables - the Musical" in Charlottetown.
