Tombstone Tuesday - Lucy Maude Montgomery

This Tombstone Tuesday post was inspired by Wendy Mathias who writes the excellent Jollett, Etc. blog. Her comment on a previous Tombstone Tuesday post, about having a visit to Prince Edward Island on her bucket list and her love of "Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery reminded me that we had visited the author's grave on Prince Edward Island more than once.



Cavendish Community Cemetery is located near the Green Gables house attraction and a wax museum. We must have visited the museum right after the cemetery on this visit, because these slides of the grave site were immediately followed by slides from the wax museum.

  1. Gorgeous photos of this Canadian icon, Anna! Long ago, I drove all the way across Canada to Nova Scotia and back, but never made it to PEI to see her grave. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It would take a long time to see all of the beautiful places in Canada, but I fell in love with PEI at a young age.

  2. I almost commented about the puffed sleeves in a photo on Michelle Ganus Taggart's blog. I must have Anne (with an E) Shirley on the brain. Thanks for sharing these photos!

    1. Funny, I often think of Ann-e when I see puffed sleeves.
