Photo Friday !!!

This week's theme on Photo Friday: Best travel photos





I was born on Magdalena Island (or Iles-de-la-Madelaine): a small Island part of the province of Quebec, located in between Newfoundland and Prince-Edward Island and Quebec . I've only lived there for a short amount of time... but to this day, it remains my favorite place in the whole world . Amazing people, great beer and look at the view !!

And since the Island is so tiny, you get that spectacular view anywere you go !

Michele sent me, TP.

Well, yes that's a majestic view but a little intimidating also. In bad weather I think I might want to be somewhere else! It sure is pretty tho

I'd love to visit PEI someday. Fell in love with it as a girl watching Anne of Green Gables.

That's beautiful! As a devoted Anne of Green Gables fan, I've always wanted to see PEI --I didn't even know about these others.

Hum.. actually, PEI and Magdalena Island are pretty far away from each other ; a 5 hours boat ride is required...

Sandy said...

I've learned something new tonight - a place I might like visit one day. Thanks for sharing it.

Karen said...

Wow, you're lucky! Those are pretty cool photos!

Here via Michele's. Have a great weekend!

I love the name..Magdalena Island. I'll have to ask a friend from Price Edward about it. Here via Michele again.

Magadalena island is in Chile. You cannot translate a french island name to english... It's Iles-de-la-madeleine. How do i know ? Living there... But i used to make the same mistake.
Great blog. Will be back !

Actually, after making some research, the official name of the Island, Magdalena, was never changed officially. Same for Groundstone Island (Cap-Aux-Meules), Old Harry and Entry Island (Ile d'entrée). The Commission de Toponynie du Québec never gaved its approval...

Hi There, Michele sent me today!
That looks like a wonderful place..The seas look quite volatile...Is it like that all the time?

Just a trumpet player said...

I have to admit... a tempest was on its way...

I love the maritimes, although I've never been to your island. But I've visited Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI and I think they are all so lovely with such warm friendly people. You're lucky to be there.

Here via Michele

what beautiful coastline!

hello to you from michele.

pardon me while i wander more of your blog now :)

Terri said...

Hi..from Michele's.
What a beautiful area. Looks like a very rugged coastline, unlike my island here. I'm also going to browse more of your blog now.

Hi, here from Micheles. I'm also from a rural, coastal place. I love that I can see such beauty any time I like.
