We were the only car in the parking lot at Cavendish Grove with only one car parked at the Beach. Early morning on a sunny day in the national park on Prince Edward Island, the only sound came from the birds and the sea. The sky and sea were a perfect backdrop.
While cycling the parkway, it is easy for my husband and I to be distracted by the coastline. The breaking waves and the red coast anchor the blues. We watch for several minutes each time we stop.
Sometimes, looking directly out to sea, evergreens are the anchor.
Other times, blues are muted by the sun.
On setting day as we cycled along, we could hear the fishing boats off shore, the sound carried on the wind. A few were close enough for photos as they set the traps that first day of the lobster season. Photos of working fishers are among my favourites.
Fishers of the feathered kind float on MacNeills Pond. That hook at the end of the beak is handy for fishing.
The old fence behind the dunes at Cavendish Beach and the weathered trees are highlighted by the sky.
A new walkway to the beach blends with the dunes and vegetation.
Every time we are at the park, new favourites greet us.
