Our recent visit to a Heritage Road in central Prince Edward Island took us past a watershed conservation area overseen by the Trout River Environmental Committee. The non-profit group wants to “restore the natural integrity” of that watershed.
The waterfall, like a veil over the face of the pond, made us stop.
In this area, boats appear to launch, people stop to fish,
and a ladder helps fish swim up river.
A lone cormorant swam on the far side, periodically diving and resurfacing meters from his original place.
Overhead, tree swallows flitted in the air; their antics made us stop and watch. One of two bird houses in the area was broken on one side and straw could be seen through the opening. The birds availed of these homes.
The sound of the water was calming as was the scene. We will visit again, maybe to fish and have a picnic with the kids.
