SPSH 2019 | Maine-New Brunswick-Prince Edward Island-Nova Scotia

To celebrate my 50th birthday in July, we flew to Bangor, Maine, then rented a car for a two-week road trip to New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia, Canada.

If you've been following along here this summer, you'll know this is my fourth set of photos for this year's photo scavenger hunt! I've thoroughly enjoyed taking time to find this FUN list of items in Ohio, (with my nieces) at the library, (with friends) around Dallas, and on our summer vacation. Sending a huge thanks to Mary-Lou of the Patio Postcards blog for hosting this seasonal scavenger hunt.

Did you join in the hunt this year?


  1. Excellent finds! You have done brilliantly this Summer!

  2. Oh what a fantastic grouping of SPSH - I know your love of Anne of Green Gables stories so I'm sure this was an extra special trip for you. Thanks so much for joining in & I'm pleased you enjoyed so much.

  3. You've done a stellar job this summer with the hunt. I think this is my favorite of the bunch. The summer before I was married I went to many of the same places with a friend. We camped and had all of our equipment and luggage in a tiny VW bug! It was quite the trip, but we had a fabulous time.

  4. Love the photos you've captured; it looks like it was a wonderful trip. Welcome to the over 50 crowd, which, alas, I will soon be exiting.

  5. A great collection of photos. I particularly like your blue umbrella against the blue sea.. How interesting to visit LM Montgomery's home and grave.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
