This is the view from our cottage (and my little trailer). I took this picture last summer on an absolutely flat. calm. day. If you look closely you can see the clouds reflected in the water. That dark line is Prince Edward Island across the Northumberland Strait. That point of land on the right hand side is named Johnson's Point. I have walked around there a couple of times at low tide. Now I don't want to mislead you, not every day is this perfectly calm, haha. If the wind is out of the east, there is no place more miserable! But most days there is just a nice ocean breeze to cool you off, and keep the bugs away.
This was the view last Saturday. Again, it was a flat. calm. day. You can barely see PEI off in the distance. There was some open water, but the Northumberland Strait is still packed with ice. My husband and I took a walk down to the beach and returned via the road. Some of the fishermen were loading their lobster traps into the fish shed in preparation of the upcoming season which opens May 1st and runs until June 30th. You can order your lobsters and pick them up when the boats come back to the wharf around noon--Monday to Saturday. (They never fish on Sunday.) Oh my, I can hardly wait for lobster season!
