We Met the Lieutenant Governor Today!

Today the Lieutenant Governor and his wife hosted a lovely open house at his official residence, Fanningbank.  His honour was quite a gracious host. Upon our second walk through the house, he stopped the kids to give each of them his official pin and he stopped for a photo even though someone more important had just arrived.  It was such a cool experience.  The kids and I have been studying Canadian history and were all in awe at being in this beautiful place where the Charlottetown Conference delegates enjoyed various social functions.

 The Honorable  H. Frank Lewis, Lieutenant Governor of Prince Edward Island.

 All geared up for our second walk through this grand home.

 The dinning room.  The table dates back to 1834 when the house was built.

 A beautifully decorated chandelier.

There are nine functional fireplaces throughout the home.
