It was hot with the usual Prince Edward Island breeze making the temperature bearable. My husband and I drove along the French shore of the island, just west of Summerside, with the windows open, the breeze flowing through the car as we enjoyed the sea view. We were headed to Cape Egmont.
The Cape is a headland jutting into the Northumberland Strait and just off-shore, attached to the shoreline via a stoney umbilical cord,
a sea stack is visible below the cliff. The red sandstone in this area has a thick layer of soil above which is easily eroded.
The stone takes a bit longer.
The sea stack has two holes these days, a larger one on the landward side.
Above is a great perch for birds, especially cormorants on this particular day. One with damaged feathers makes a curious sight as it approaches for a landing.
Some on the perch dry normal looking wings in the breeze.
Walking along the headland, one can look east along the coastline as far as Union Corner.
Looking west, there is my husband on the narrow strip of land opposite the sea stack taking photos.
I could not stand in that narrow place myself and cannot watch my husband there. Instead I focus on the lighthouse and beyond,
the wharf where lobster boats leave today as the second lobster season begins on the island.
Off-shore, jet skis or sea-doos zip along the coastline. They always remind me of snowmobiles, a common sight in winter in Canada. These summer versions don’t require as much clothing.
Leaving the Cape, we saw a hare crossing the road. I had to settle for a photo through the car window.
On that hot Sunday afternoon, on the way home we stopped for ice cream at a dairy bar in the area. A horse watched from its trailer as the driver lined up to order. The horse wants some too!
Are blogs you once followed not appearing on your blog feed any longer though you haven’t made any changes and those blogs are still active? Is there a fix for it?
