Every September we take in a comedy show at the village of Victoria by the Sea, Prince Edward Island. The little village does not change much from year to year. A new house on the corner,
a new paint job for another house are among the changes this year. But, the village looked different because of our new vantage point.
This year, the tide was low, so we ventured along the beach
and onto the exposed sand bars to see the village from what has been the sea on our previous visits.
The red sea floor was covered with sea snails or periwinkles, seaweed and barnacles.
Along the water, a yellowlegs foraged for lunch, while a flock of cormorants rested nearby.
Exposed sandstone looked like sand.
Looking to shore, the wharf, with its restaurant and gift shops appeared small in the distance.
Later, on the way to the theatre, this colourful door caught our attention
as did this plant stand.
It was the end of the theatre season for 2017.
Now the village will return to the quiet lifestyle the residents enjoy for the remainder of the year.
