Beauty of the beach

Our recent visit to Seven Mile Bay, Prince Edward Island, was filled with views of the beach, geese, seaweed and The Confederation Bridge. It was a gray day and the cloud cover gave the feeling of the edge of twilight, my favourite time of day. Occasionally the sun brightened a section of sky.

Initially, there was a breeze off the water but it ceased as we walked. A section of the beach is lined with cottages, 

 

and some enterprising owners have fortified their shoreline with rocks to help prevent erosion. In another spot, someone had discarded some mustard plants over the bank earlier in the year and they flourished 



and looked cheerful along the shoreline. A night shade plant had gone to seed as well; its brilliant red berries caught the eye.

 

Several streams interrupted the shoreline and babbled their way down the beach. 

 

The sound blended with the ocean's melody to create a peaceful symphony. 

 

Sitting by a stream was music for the soul.

 

Nearby some ducks broke the reverie as they quacked and swam around their pond, mere feet from the high tide mark. They fit into the soundtrack, providing another note.

 

It was a place of natural wonder.

  7. Awe. I love ducks. I raised them when I was a young married woman living in the country. For a city girl, learning to love the country was so much fun.
