The church and cemetery at Orwell Historic Village.
We took a leisurely drive around the East Coast Road today. It was more the working side of the island. One of the most interesting stops we made was to Orwell's Historic Village. It is the actual village, not a re-creation and the volunteers running the place had relatives from way back in the little cemetery. The barn was filled with animals, too. These PEI people really knew how to work. In 1901 there were 14,000 farms on the island compared to just a little over 1,800 in 2001.

With so much water, there's a lighthouse every few miles.
