key to a great fruitcake, in my opinion, is to add lots of fruits
and nuts like the ones below; which describe why Avonlea is so special.
is not a strong enough word! Avonlea is like "My Light
Way to Light," to quote Avonlea's famous Anne Shirley
Let's see Avonlea is sooo meaningful to me for Avonlea exist in
"our dream world" where we can experience life of the
early 1900's. Avonlea is our home where the King's are our
friends. Miss Hetty King and Mr. Clive Pettibone educated
us, Mrs. Muriel St
acey Pettibone and Izzy greet us every day as we do our shopping
at The General Store, and Felix King, Piere La Piere, and Mr.
Simon Tramane wait on us when we want a bite to eat at The White
Sands Hotel. The best part about Avonlea is that "Avonlea
never vanish, but will be in our hearts forever!"

The beauty of PrinceEdward
Island.The quiant little hamlet of Avonlea. The warmth of Janet
and Alec's home. The smell of apple pie and home made bread
baking in Janet's kitchen.
Can't you just smell it now.I love to watch alec and janet, they
seem so in love, and have so much love for their
children,Felicity, Felix, Cecily, and little Daniel.I love
having tea with them and eating a meal with them and Aunt Hetty,
Olivia, and sara..
When I watch this beautiful
series I feel I'm in Avonlea with all of these lovely characters,
mixing and mingling with each and every one of them. I like
Murial Stacey, Clive Pettibone and Morgan,Izzy, and Aurther and I
must not forget Gus Pike. A beautiful young man at heart, having
a yearning for education and wanting to be a gentlman, which he
became. I love the beautiful costumes they wore, the way their
homes were decorated(the king Farm, Rose Cottage,Olivia and
Jasper's home).Even down to the dishes, which I love and collect.
I love walking down the dirt road along the seashore with the
children, or strolling through the orchards smelling the sweet
smell of peaches and apples. I LOVE AVONLEA!
