It was hot, 28 degrees Celsius without much wind. As the four of us approached the beach, we noticed the sands had shifted from the dunes onto the steps to the beach.
My brother, Frank and his wife, Michele joined my husband and me for a walk that day. None had been to Cavendish Beach before.
The sand was soft and fine; it felt like silk under foot as we walked to the end of the beach. There were people on the beach, more than we are accustomed to this time of year.
People were enjoying the sun and sand except for three young people who sat on the sand-covered steps using their cell phones. A beautiful day and a silky, sandy beach could not draw these young people away from their phones! Were they texting each other?
On our way to the car, we walked through the new tree green of spring
and passed a friend along the way.
A picnic under the trees was in order.
A large patch of forget-me-nots along the path was in contrast to the dandelion flowers which were everywhere.
This photo, captured by my husband, was our favourite of the day.
As we approached the car, a pair of geese watched us warily, but didn't move away which was peculiar. They must be accustomed to people in the area. We see geese in profile and never this close.
As we drove away, they continued to watch us from a stand of last year's Queen Ann's lace. We wondered if people are feeding them. We never would but will return to see the goslings.
