St. Mary's Church Indian River
As with many rural Churches on the Island it's always open and admission is free. There is an honor box for donations.
St. Mary's Church was built in 1902 with a rib-vaulted or groined ceiling, enhancing the quality of sound and archives with the use of fir, pine, spruce, maple, and birch throughout the building.
Today, St. Mary's remains the architectural and acoustical treasure that the Architect William Harris envisioned; the perfect setting for voice and instruments to celebrate wonderful music. It has been said that the natural acoustics of St. Mary's rates as one of the top ten places to perform in the world.
Since 1996, the Indian River Festival has arranged for some of the best classical musicians in North America and Europe to perform at St. Mary's.
St.Simons and St.Judes
Easily the most beautiful church on the north cape, St. Simon & St. Jude Church, called Tignish Church on the island, is a Roman Catholic church located in Tignish parish. It is the single largest church on Prince Edward Island, clearly seen for 6 miles on flat land, and for many miles at sea.
Cannery rd. North of New London
Just sightseeing after eating at the restaurant north of New London, the best food in the area. It also has a Really good lobster pound right next door to the restaurant. Oyster lovers dream; Malpeque Oysters are the Best Hands down anywhere.
L.M. Montgomery's resting place
Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) fans won't want to miss the chance to pay their final respects at the author's burial site. Even though Montgomery died in Toronto, she was buried in the place she loved the most on earth: her Island. The Cavendish cemetery is located at the intersection of Routes 6 and 13. Montgomery's grave is very easy to find.Related to:

No ugly sights on PEI/Novia Scotia
There are so many small villages on Novia Scotia and PEI (Prince Edward Island), I couldn't possibly name them. And of course, I've forgotten the names of many of them. Most people who visit have a car so use it and drive around. Take the road less travelled and see what you'll find.
The lighthouse at North Cape...
The lighthouse at North Cape is one of the first on the Island. Built in 1866, the lighthouse is a fine example of original lighthouse construction, and continues its singularly dramatic role on a site that is claimed by some as the windiest spot on the Island. North Cape is also home to the Atlantic Wind Test Site. Comprised of 8 gigantic windmills, the farm produces 3% of PEI's energy!
The North Cape Complex houses a gift shop, marine aquarium, interpretive center, a licensed restaurant and a panoramic view of the Gulf and Strait.
French River Sunday Drive
Nothing here but a small village but these shots were taken from a nice little vista with a safe pulloff just south of thereRelated to:
