September 16th, 2010 pt.2

From Prince Edward Island National Park, that same day we rode to a town called Cavendish where the farmhouse of Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery is located.  

L.M. Montgomery is known for her novels about the fictional character Anne of Green Gables. 

There was an admission fee to enter the property, but sneaky Amanda managed to find a used sticker on the floor by the exit that verifies that she had supposedly paid.  Having already been here on another motorcycle trip 2 years ago, I stayed back to watch the bikes while eating Fritos. 

The book Anne of Green Gables, published in 1908, has been translated into 36 languages and is taught to students around the world.  The novel is very popular in Japan where it has been on the school curriculum since 1952.
