Spring activities are in full swing here. Barbecues, walks, hikes, picnics are on-going now any day the weather permits. On our most recent excursion, we went northeast to the National Park. We drove along the Gulf Shore Parkway, with sand dunes on one side and marsh land or ponds on the other and stopped at Covehead.
A lighthouse set in the sand dunes at Covehead
guides boats in and out of Covehead Harbour. Nearby a bridge allows the boats access to the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
The bridge has a pedestrian walkway on either side and a barrier with a sign, discouraging people from jumping or diving from the bridge.
It overlooks the wharf where everything is ready for today, when lobster traps are set for the season.
The beach on the other side of the dunes has seaweed mounds, sand drifts accumulated on pieces of seaweed thrown ashore over the winter.
