Photo of the day: Canada Day in Charlottetown

in Ottawa to PEI 2014, Photo of the Day

If you’re going to be in PEI for Canada Day, there are few things better I can think of doing than going to see Anne of Green Gables the Musical at the Confederation Centre for the Arts for their first performance of their 50th (!) season. That’s more than 2800 performances and 16 different Annes (with an “e”!) since 1964. We loved it, loved it, loved it. If you’ll remember, I had never read (oh the shame!) Anne of Green Gables before I read it to the big boys earlier this year, and so we had a nice mix of familiarity and unfamiliarity with the story among the five of us. Even Lucas sat (mostly) still and engaged through the whole thing. It was perfect!

So between the hour drive in and then back out of Charlottetown and the three hour performance and the obligatory stop for ice cream and a bit of wandering and dinner (BoomBurger, highly recommended! Best fries on the Island!) we don’t have a lot of photos of our Canada Day celebrating the sesquicentennial (150th anniversary) of the signing of the Charlottetown Accord, which gave birth to Canada. But a gentleman outside the was kind enough to act as a human tripod and take this one for us, and I think that just about sums it up.
