Favorite towns -- Victoria P.E.I.

Victoria, Prince Edward Island is one of my
favorite towns in the world for many reasons.
Years ago when Sam was a baby, we spent
more than a month in a cottage on the south
shore of Prince Edward Island.

As is our practice when we travel, we explored
the island and loved it for its gorgeous sea views,
rolling farm land, red sand, delicious food,
warm people and many lovely, old Victorian

My painting today is of one of the many superb
homes in Victoria -- which was just down the road
from the glorious cottage on the beach where we
spent one very happy July.  Today Victoria
has a theater, several great restaurants, an amazing
antique store, and is a treat for the senses.

I'm almost finished this little house.  I may put on
a few final touches tomorrow.

Have a visiting-a-favorite-town day.

It's gorgeous--and perfectly names. I like the way everything fits in the space.
Peter's aunt and uncle used to go to PEI every year (they live in Montreal) ... and I have always wanted to go.

Hi Laura,

Thank you. I love P.E.I. and Nova Scotia for the red sand views, so beautiful. And the people, and the love of culture.
