CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island - I am not the hand-clappin', knee-slappin', foot-tappin' sort but unexpectedly found myself engaging in those behaviors on Prince Edward Island, a destination that sings to the heart and soothes the soul. The peaceful little island, smallest of all Canada's provinces, is just north of the much better-known and more accessible Nova Scotia and is linked to New Brunswick by the Confederation Bridge. Only 140 miles long and from 4 to 40 miles wide, the island, known as PEI, might seem like an easy destination to cover in a week's time.

Maybe you've seen the ads. They've been all over TV and in magazines like Time and Sports Illustrated. There is U.S. Paralympian Tatyana McFadden in her sleek titanium racing wheelchair, hunched over in mid-push, shoulder muscles rippling, a look of fierce determination on her face. The ads, from petroleum giant BP, call her "Lady Velocity" and carry the tag line "Team USA: Fueling Their Future. " Which is fitting, in a way. Because whatever is fueling Tatyana McFadden - whatever is pumping through her heart and coursing through her veins and energizing that ripped torso - medical science might want to study it someday.

Prince Edward Island, Canada, is having a 100th birthday party this year for a freckled redhead with pigtails who first appeared in 1908. She's Anne of author Lucy Maud Montgomery's beloved novel Anne of Green Gables. In honor of the book's 100th year, two signature events have been scheduled: the Aug. 17 Matthew & Marilla's Cuthbert Reunion in Summerside and the Nov. 30 celebration of the author's birthday. In addition, Lucy Maud Montgomery Festival Days, every weekday during August, will be observed at assorted venues with connections to the author and her book.

CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island - Laura Robinson, professor of English, arrived at last month's Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences with a bombshell to toss among the literary cogitations. The title of her scholarly paper, presented at the Alberta conference, told it all: "Bosom Buddies: Lesbian Desire in L. M. Montgomery's Anne Books." That's Anne, as in Anne Shirley, as in "Anne of Green Gables," the Canadian classic that generations of readers have innocently supposed to be a straightforward tale of a plucky, homely, effusively romantic red-haired girl coming of age on Prince Edward Island in the late 1800s.

She's irrepressible and adventurous. Spunky and talkative. And terribly lovable. She's Anne of the children's classic novel Anne of Green Gables.

Local playwright David Rawlings Brown penned this adaptation of the story about the young orphan who manages to work her way into everyone's heart. Molly Jackson stars as Anne. Liz Boyer Hunnicutt and Robert Riggs play Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, the sister and brother who take the young girl into their home.

Prince Edward Island's pristine beaches, private coves, rolling green farmland and dense forests have made it a romantic haven for lovers from all over the world. The charm of Canada's smallest province, off the coasts of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia by the Gulf of St. Lawrence, is that it's still a land of fisherman and craftsmen, and of farmers and artists. Its villages are intact, as are its lighthouses, lonely country churches and sandy beaches.Yet strangely enough, Prince Edward Island's tremendous appeal in the last 10 years as a romantic tourist destination has been credited to Anne of Green Gables, a spunky, red-haired fictional character created nearly 100 years ago by island author Lucy Maud Montgomery.

* Item: Country Inn Specialties Cereal* What you get: About 10 half-cup servings* Cost: About $5* Preparation time: Pour and serve* Review: When we have overnight guests, I feel terrible if I'm not home in the morning to cook breakfast. But sometimes that's the way it works out. So I was intrigued by Post's new Country Inn Specialties cereal blends. The blends aren't cheap, but they are a far cry from cornflakes. We tried the Green Gables Inn mix, and I have to confess that it was so good I found myself eating it right out of the bag. The cereal, based on a recipe from the California inn, features dried apples and cranberries, raisins, granola and tiny palmier pastries (like little almond-flavored cookies)

There is majesty here, but the usual rules on travel destinations don't quite apply to Prince Edward Island. The one major historical site -- Province House in Charlottetown -- is a place where, on the record, nothing actually took place. The creation of a nation called "Canada" got its start on the second floor, but as an idea, not as legislation or resolution or a declaration of anything. That came later. The island's two "cities" are hardly cities. Charlottetown's population is slightly over 30,000 soaking wet. In Kansas, Summerside, the other "city," would be just another dot. There is no famous geyser or mountain or cape on Prince Edward Island.
