It was ok food, but could have used some more variety and more staff.
|"I love bright red drinks, don't you? They taste twice as good as any other color."|
|One of the three heritage buildings in the village. |

It has been brought to the village for preservation.

|...just in time to see Anne smack Gilbert over the head with her slate!!!|
|Or some such nonsense.|

|The Manse (minister's house). One of three heritage buildings in Avonlea.|
|Inside the Manse.|
|General store (somewhat touristy)|
|Avonlea Dressup. Could there be a more perfect venue for 5 highly imaginative girls?|
(We met a kindred spirit in the village- she and her daughter joined us for the afternoon.)
|Kiddo with her new friend.|
|We spent about two hours playing dress-up and taking pictures.|
|What's dress-up without a couple of grandparents to spice things up?|
|Eating more Cows ice cream,|
|while Charlie Sloan rambles on about something.|
|A small museum that compares and contrasts the author's life with Anne's life.|
