Signs of spring

We drove along the north central shore of Prince Edward Island to check out the Parkway biking/walking trail in the National Park. There are long sections of trail we will be able to ride soon as the temperature warms up this week. While we were in the park, my husband and I visited some of our favourite places.


Cavendish Beach stretches out in the spring sunshine, 





with the countryside visible in the distance.





There is a great deal of snow around yet and ice hugs the shoreline.


In North Rustico, the harbour ice is melting,





which the birds appear to enjoy.





At Orby Head, the last of the ice clings to the shoreline. 





From the cliffs there, it looks like water poured from the rocks and froze on its way down to the beach.





Maybe the warmer temperatures this week will melt the ice on the weeping cliffs.


Welcome spring!

Weeping cliffs -- very nice, poetic phrase.

My photo of Cavendish beach has my kids in bathing suits and my mother wrapped in a towel. About normal for any beach. I love, love the photos. You live in a beautiful plae.

I love these late winter to early spring entries. The balance point of the equinox.

You are certainly much colder than we are but it looks like spring is back here this week despite a chilly wind that is still blowing. Lovely photos.

Take great care, Diane

I'm all for a sparkling white beach - though not necessarily an icy one! It must surely warm up soon.

I remember well visiting Cavendish Beach when my daughter was just a little girl. I hope to do it again when travel is possible - this time without her though!

The ice on those cliffs is intriguing. It always amazes me how much moving water can freeze (it doesn't ever happen here, as we don't get cold enough).

Very warm temperatures are needed to melt all that ice. Beautiful pictures as usual. :)

Hello Marie,

Pretty views of the coastline and the cliff. The ice falling down from the cliffs look like waterfalls. Spring is happening slowly here. Take care, enjoy your day!

Tanza Erlambang said...

aww...icy even in the March....
birds flying sounds a good sign of convenient temperature ahead...

Happy spring..

My family also enjoyed the sunny 1st day of spring, with a walk along the shoreline at Souris. Images very similar to yours. Your spring is so much colder than our winter.

Debbie said...

Magnificent photos. The frozen waterfalls are so beautiful.
I'm glad you could get out even though it seems pretty frigid to me.

So nice to see the green grass emerging from the melting snow. The huge pile that was dumped by the plow in front of my house is now down to about 6 inches high. Hooray for Spring!

Your very own frozen waterfall !

It looks cold and wintery there. But in my yard the only sign of spring. Robin and blue birds have return. Tree has buds on them.
Coffee is on and stay safe

Oh how exciting it is to see the early days of spring! I loved seeing the shorelines with the ice still hanging on, so beautiful. Soon, it won't be long now, and you will be riding your bike along the bikeway once again!

Lea said...

Beautiful photos!

Wonderful views Marie, still a fair bit of snow along the coastline.. won't take long for that to disappear as it warms up. You will be looking forward to getting your bikes out and packing a picnic I'm sure ✨
