Prince Edward Island

Hi There!

Last Friday, October 17th, 2008, I had to attend a Board of Director's meeting, for my work - I was asked to take the minutes.

This meeting was held in Prince Edward Island, one of our provinces.

Prince Edward Island is the smallest province in Canada and is renowned for (in my opinion):
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maude Montgomery
Red earth - I've taken pictures to show you.
Potato farming
and tourism.

Anyhow, after our meeting, we were invited to dinner (supper meal), hosted by Her Honour, the Honourable Barbara A. Hagerman, Lieutenant Governor of Prince Edward Island and His Honour Nelson Hagerman, at the Government House, in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

Now if you're not a Canadian, you're probably wondering what is a Lieutenant Governor. I looked up the definition on the internet and this is what I found:

A Lieutenant Governor in Canada is a provincial representative of the Queen. Lieutenant Governors are appointed by the Prime Minister of Canada and the federal government pays their salaries. The role is mainly ceremonial.

Her Honour told us that we could take the menu, with us.
Here's a copy of the dinner menu - pictures taken from my sewing room, the next day:

And you can see the menu, itself. *grin*

I only wish that I had thought of taking pictures of all our "dishes"!
It was only when we got to the dessert, that I requested permission
from Her Honour, to take a picture!

Anyhow, this is the dessert - to DIE for!!! *grin*

The next morning, on our way back to New Brunswick,
I took a few pictures to show you
Prince Edward Island's "red" earth...

Keep in mind that I was the passenger and the car was moving
as I was clicking away! *grin*

Everywhere.. and I do mean EVERYWHERE....
the earth is "red"!!! Cool, eh?

And this picture was taken just before we got on the Confederation Bridge, the world's longest bridge and on to New Brunswick.

So, here's another one of my silly blogs and picture sharing that has to do with "My World".
