44: Port-la-Joye - Fort Amherstt is a National Historic Site commemorating the first permanent European settlement on Prince Edward Island.

The grounds provide an excellent view of the countryside and the Charlottetown Harbor.
46: 6/16/07 Our last morning at the B&B. We were up fairly early and were having beakfast when we saw this eagle land in the yard by the cliffs. We rushed out to get some pretty decent pictures of her. We were then in the car on our way to Nova Scotia soon after that. Arla sent us on our way with delicious cranberry scones.
49: We had reservations at the Prospect Village B&B. It was a wonderful old restored house owned by a delightful couple, Allan & Rosalie.Lockyer. When we arrived, we were both pretty tired, as is obvious from the picture of me below. We sat and had a glass of wine and a sandwich with Allan and Rosalie and had a nice long conversation before going to bed. Rosalie is a published singer with a beautiful voice and entertained us several times while we were there. | June 16, 2007
50: Top right is a picture of the front of our B&B. The shots of the rocky bay taken from the back of the house is the view we had from our window.
51: June 17, 2007 Up early and out and about. Such a gorgeous place. We decided we | should have spent more time in Nova Scotia and less in PEI.
52: The wildlife was amazing. We were able to get some great shots of birds in flight.
53: A whole miniature village in Lower Prospect
57: Our trip around Nova Scotia took us to the little town of Lunenburg, abut 60 miles southwest our B&B. It had a lot of little shops and we ate lunch at one of the restaurants.
58: How strange!! On our trip around Nova Scotia, we came upon this beach that, as you see, is named Nova Scotia Cleveland Beach Park!! | Gorgeous Rocky Beaches
59: We got to Peggy's Cove about 5:30 and took lots of pictures of this spectacular lighthouse. We ate dinner at the restaurant there and by 7:00 pm when we left to go back to the B&B, the lighthouse was totally fog enshrouded.
60: Awesome | Peggy's Cove Lighthouse

62: 6/18/2007-8:00 a.m. Goodbye, Nova Scotia. Electricity was off this morning and so we had to leave for Portland, Maine, without showers. | Top left - That picture was taken at the rear of the B&B - a beautiful view from our room. Bottom Left is the back of the B&B. Above - Leaving Nova Scotia.

64: Cape Elizabeth, Me., is the home of Portland Head Light, situated along the spectacular shores of Fort Williams Park. In 1787, the General Court of Massachusetts (the Massachusetts legislature) provided $750 to begin construction of a lighthouse. In 1790, when the United States Government took over the responsibility of all lighthouses, Congress appropriated $1,500 for its completion. The original tower measured 72' from base to lantern deck and was lit with 16 whale oil lamps. It was first lit on January 10, 1791. By 1864 a 4th order Fresnel lens was installed. | Portland Head Light
65: We were up and at the Lighthouse by 8:30 a.m. We took dozens of pictures and were on our way home by 9:00 a.m.
