Here I am as Anne of Green Gables:
I'm so glad Cheryl talked me into this!
|Cheryl and I|
|The Confederation Bridge as seen from the end of Marilyn and Bruce's street...|
|Charlene, Zephyr, and I..|
|Heading down the trail|
|Trail blocked by a snow drift !|
|running in the meadow!|
I don't know what it is about miniaturists that we have this bond somehow. The first time I met Cheryl was when I arrived in Halifax seven years ago (hard to believe that it's so few years ago) and we felt like we had known each other forever.
So we returned to Borden and knocked on Marilyn and Bruce's door and it felt like we had known them forever. An absolutely wonderful couple! Both very proud of their Irish heritage (Bruce is the Past-President of the Irish Canadian Cultural Association of New Brunswick and Marilyn is the Assistant Editor of The Shamrock Leaf - its newsletter) and are off to Ireland in June for another month there.
They have me wondering about my own Irish heritage on my father's side. I have a lot of information on the English (maternal) side of the family but none on the paternal side.
The rest of the trip tomorrow.
