The beauty of Rural Prince Edward Island in Winter!
I was to Porthill today. There was a light snowfall last night and with the bright sunshine today the snow covered landscape literally sparkled! Here's a farmstead near Porthill.
Below is the Anglican Parish of Porthill. To the left was the first church of this parish, built in 1841 and currently being restored; later in the century a new church (center) was built across the road; and in the early 1900s the rectory, built large in the fox-style.
As I left Porthill I stayed along the shore road and took this photo of a farmstead in Lot 16 - behind is the Grand River.
