Happy Mother’s Day! I’ve been reminiscing about my first Mother’s day that I spent walking along the shores of Prince Edward Island National Park with my mom and my daughter. The red colored sand cliffs set against the gentle waves of the ocean was so beautiful! Lucy Maud Montgomery (author of Anne of Green Gables) put P.E.I. on the map and it is easy to see why she was so inspired writing about the place she loved.
“There is a great solitude about such a shore. The woods are never solitary- they are full of whispering, beckoning, friendly life. But the sea is a mighty soul, forever moaning of some great, unshareable sorrow, which shuts it up into itself for all eternity. We can never pierce its infinite mystery- we may only wander, awed and spell-bound, on the outer fringe of it. The woods call to us with a hundred voices, but the sea has one only- a mighty voice that drowns our souls in its majestic music. The woods are human, but the sea is of the company of the archangels.”
–Lucy Maud Montgomery
