[PHOTO] Four photos of Cavendish Grove, the former Rainbow Valley, PEI

leave a comment »

Cavendish Grove, a winding network of paths through trees not far from the north shore, was built on the grounds of the well-loved but now closed amusement park of Rainbow Valley. It was a lovely space to eat lunch, but a bit disorienting to pass by places I knew quite well–there were the paddle boat ponds, there was the castle barring entry to the park, there was the UFO, over there was the talking owl–only to see nothing there.

There is not that much to the site of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Cavendish childhood home, just paths around the sandstone foundation and plenty of trees and a garden, and farmer’s fields beyond. It’s still a peaceful place, and a beautiful place, hinting at the reasons for Montgomery’s love of this corner of the island.

The Site of L.M. Montgomery’s Cavendish home marks the place where infant Lucy Maud was raised by her grandparents following the death of her mother. The home itself is gone, but the museum/gift shop holds some artifacts of note.

The site of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Cavendish home stands just west–right, in this photo–of the Cavendish church of the United Church of Canada that I shared yesterday.

This church, belonging to the United Church of Canada, apparently caters heavily to the tourist trade.

Cavendish’s Friendly Lane, a street meandering off of Route 13 just east of the intersection with Route 6, is most famous as the street home to Canadian senator Mike Duffy, he who had been acquitted of charges of misusing public funds and of misrepresenting his residency on the island. There are other things to Friendly Lane, like nice views: if one looks to the east, across the green fields with cylindrical bales of hale stretching down to the Gulf of St. Lawrence, one would scarcely be displeased. It would be a nice place to live, at least in summer when the Gulf is not ice and the cold winds would not be blowing onto shore.
