I was lucky last weekend to get away to PEI for a day and a half, thanks to my in-laws, who offered us a treat of a night away after they had spent some time at this cottage during the week. We stayed the Saturday night at a cottage in a place called Point Prim. It was very pretty there. On the way to the cottage, we stopped for an ice cream at the Cows Ice Cream factory in Charlottetown. Here is Marc with the ENORMOUS cow that they have on the grounds.
The cottage where we stayed looked out over the ocean. We could walk down to the beach from the backyard. The land drops very precipitously, so you can't walk too close to the edge when you are up at the top, otherwise you might drop to the beach below! Here the tide is high so the beach is mostly underwater and just the large blocks of sandstone are visible.
After the high tide level drops, you can see the same area turns into a beach with interesting wave formations in the sand. That land is the background is the same land as seen above, but the top picture was taken on Saturday afternoon and the bottom one was taken on Sunday morning.
The entire time in PEI made me very happy. The cottage had a swing-set in the yard that faced the ocean, so I sat there swinging and looking at the sea and sky going on forever. I was really very happy to be there.
I also spent time paddling about in the sea. That made me happy too. I need to do things like this more often!
Bonus shot - a while ago, one of our prompts was for a sunset and I had trouble getting one because of all the trees around our house that block our view of the sunset. I was so lucky to be able to photograph this stunning sunset from the cottage deck in PEI.
Up at the top, you can just see the hazy moon. It was a glorious end to a very good day.
