So, there I was, scheduling a few posts for when we travel to Pennsylvania to visit my son and his family. And I tried out the “improved posting experience” of WordPress which decided to poste my Victoria #3 post then and there…..sorry about that.
Victoria, or Victoria-by-the-sea as it is sometimes called, is a tiny unspoiled village on the south shore of Prince Edward Island, between the bridge to the mainland and Charlottetown, the capital and largest city. Victoria boasts at least three eating establishments (one of them a chocolate shop) a professional summer theatre, galleries, shops, an inn, charming houses and a nearby provincial park, which you can see in the background. But it is tiny; just four blocks plus the wharf.
We went to a production of Kiss the Sun, Kiss the Moon at the Victoria Playhouse, preceded by supper at the Landmark Cafe (neither of which I photographed) .
This first set of photos shows the setting: the wharf, the lighthouse, the shores and the farmed inland view towards Hampton.
