A sunny day with a breeze made for perfect conditions after several days of rain. We spent the day with family at Chelton Beach Park and started with a picnic.
This beach is on the south shore of the island near the Confederation Bridge, visible in the distance.
After lunch, we headed to the beach where it was low tide, creating tidal pools which we love to explore.
We found seaweed, hermit crabs and small fish known locally as bait fish.
In the distance, the lighthouse at Seacow Head looked to be enjoying the summer day too.
Down the beach, a dog looked to be experiencing the ocean for the first time. It was a pleasure to watch its prancing and dancing along the beach and into the waves.
Any time we are at the beach, our grandson has his dump truck and digger with him.
The children love the water but also enjoy playing in the sand.
Meanwhile, in the air, several species of gulls floated on the breeze
and hung around with our family enjoying the water.
Nearby another family made a huge sandcastle which we watched for several hours as the Northumberland Strait reclaimed it.
And finally, you never know where you’ll see a Canadian flag.
