North shore in March

A beautiful March day drew us out of the house for a drive along the north shore of Prince Edward Island to the coast of the national park. We were the only people in the area.


There is still ice along the coastline 





but off-shore, the blue water of the Gulf of St Lawrence is a sign of what is to come.


Along the shore, the red soil is obvious after the winter winds blew sand over the grass. 





We stopped in several places where benches were inviting on this warm March day. 





It was a welcome change to sit and relax in the sun, which feels so good on the face.





The opening in the red sandstone cliff at Mackenzie’s Brook looks bigger since last autumn. 




Meanwhile, the sea ice languishes in the March sun.

I feel so good when I see the sun!
This was another good outing in beautiful PEI.

Thinking of the warm sun on your face sounds lovely, but the wind off the ice must have been a bit on the cold side. It is beautiful, though. The benches look tempting. :-)

A flair for the poetic: " the sea ice languishes in the March sun"

Love this kind of day Marie, especially if we have it all to ourselves. I can imagine how quiet it would be.. and chilly 💙

It was very nice here as well. I had boots on and went out for a few minutes in the slush. Your photos looks so beautiful. That bench does indeed looks inviting. May the rest of the month be lovely for us all!!

If that counts as a spring day on PEI then I'll have to take your word for it! All that ice looks a mite chilly to me. Proper spring must surely be on its way.

What beautiful views of the sea!
The red bench is pretty. It looks like a sign of spring coming!

Last night a good frost, but each day warmer and sunnier. My daffodils are blooming and my tulips are coming up...and as much as I want spring, I am not really ready.

We've been having such nice weather here. Although I'm sure it is still pretty cold there, it does look like it's warming up and spring is approaching.
