Aerial Tour of Prince Edward Island

Aerial Tour of Prince Edward Island

It would be a good idea for us to take a similar tour and do a video/slideshow documentary operating from various places around the island near the ocean.  We will have a rig and portable antennas to make this possible now.  We can put that into our planning.

My one vote is to visit Avonlea, site of the movie Ann of Green Gables.  This movie was shot entirely in Prince Edward Island.

Anne of Green Gables is a 1985 Canadian television drama film based on the novel of the same name by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. The film starred Megan Follows and was produced and directed by Kevin Sullivan for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. It was released theatrically in Iran, Israel, Europe, and Japan.

The film aired on CBC Television as a two-part miniseries on December 1, 1985. Both parts of the film were among the highest-rated programs of any genre ever to air on a Canadian television network. On February 17, 1986, the film aired on PBS in the United States on the series WonderWorks.

If you ever have the chance, try to watch the movie - a great family movie.
