This summer we have had a delightful time
watching the film series "Road to Avonlea".
Frankly, I didn't know about this series
even though I had a DVD copy of
"Christmas in Avonlea" and of course
the original "Anne of Green Gables",
"The Sequel" and "Anne the
Continuing Story". It was Gina who enlightened me and also loaned us
her series that covers 91 hours during
the 7 seasons. We finished yesterday and of course - shed a few tears too!
Today I am telling those of you who are
interested - that this is a wonderful series.
I especially enjoyed the character of Hitty
passed away at age 71 in 2010. Also, another
53 years old.
For my quiet - reflective tea time today I am
reminiscing about all the wonderful characters and also sharing with you
some lovely Summertime Scones.
Here are photos of just a few of my
favorite characters from Road to Avonlea -
can you name them?
I am trying to think what I liked best about
this former television series largely filmed
in Ontario with glimpses of Prince
Edward Island interjected. It reflects
the time of 1903 to 1912. I think it is the
feeling of "community" that I love the best.
The idea of a small town of people
- more like a village really - working
together on their journey through life.
They certainly faced many difficulties
and had many joyful celebrations.
So who wrote all of these wonderful
her grandparents. Many of the stories are fictional knock offs if you will, to real experiences Lucy had after her
Mother's death when she was growing up and going to school in Cavendish. (born in New London, PEI) I see so many similarities
between Lucy and Anne!
I think you would love these DVD's!
Please let me know if you have already
watched this series or perhaps the earlier Anne of Green
