The sea stacks draw us to Thunder Cove. Every spring we wonder how the elements weathered the formations this past year. We recently paid our visit for this summer, timed to coincide with a receding tide.
Younger limbs and joints climb over the rock along the beach which hides a view of the sea stacks.
We wait for a receding tide so we can move around the rock which juts into the sea. It’s fun to time the waves and run.
This is the site of the famous teacup sea stack.
It has survived another winter, however one can’t help but wonder how much longer it will stand. There are always people here as is the case on this day though not like during summer vacations.
There are three sea stacks, though one is more like a sea block.
Until two years ago, an land bridge connected one sea stack to the cliff. The bridge collapsed and the sea continues its artistry. From a certain angle it looks as if a bridge is still present.
This day, a man is stood on the sand bars while his golden retriever looks on.
Nearby, others have made Inuksuk-like rock piles, leaving a sign of their attendance at the scene. Maybe they will last the season.
This beach is perfect for a walk and a look at nature’s handiwork.
