The beach at Brander’s Pond

In the summer, the pond is hidden behind summer’s flourish.



A stream flows from the pond into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The gurgling, soothing,




trickling sounds of the gentle flow can be heard over the surf ahead.



My husband and I are compelled to stop, look and listen.

Cottages along the shoreline mean a few people are on the beach but it’s far from crowded. Young families play in the sand, the stream or the sea.

A chair nearby looks comfortable.



Imagine a chat with friends around a fire there.



Don’t look down though.



The red cliffs and sea stack are a sharp contrast to the sea and sky.



Cormorants usually sunning themselves on the sea stack are gone fishing.

As we walk down the beach,



a glance back reminds us why we love this place.

I could not -- NOT!! -- sit in any of those chairs! I get so dizzy with heights and feel like I am being drawn forward against my will! I'm shivering just thinking about it.

But it makes a wonderful picture. The cliff and the bank and the water all combine to be a spectacular sight.

It was a picture perfect moment Jenny.
