The air is full of birdsong everywhere you go. We saw some yellow warblers
as my husband and I headed to the floating boardwalk, the real reason for our visit to the Greenwich portion of the National Park on Prince Edward Island.
The work is new but not the idea. There has been a boardwalk over Bowley Pond since the 1990s but this one is new. And a grand one it is!
The trail to the sand dunes at Greenwich leads through the woods and over the pond via a floating boardwalk. It stretches out before you as you leave the forest path.
It is hard to believe this water almost dries up in the summer when you look out over the water today.
There is motion under foot as you traverse the walkway. The motion is more pronounced if a group of people is with you, though not frightening. There are several places where you can pause to take in the setting,
to look out at the dunes on shore
and the grasses and cattails in the water,
or the boardwalk itself.
Like so much of life, it is all about the journey.
