Friday's Hunt v. 4.05

I didn't quite make it to my usual goal of posting Friday's Hunt on Friday.  As is often the case these days, a busy week and a lot on the go.  I'm playing catch-up now, so here's my take on the Friday's Hunt prompts from Eden Hills:  Starts with E, Drop(s), Happy.

Starts with E
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.

...enormous sums things up, tides sure are great at higher latitudes, stay happy, great sunset!

Nice picture of Mark and the cow. Yes, it is enormous and without Mark being in the picture we wouldn't have appreciated it's size. I would have liked to have gone to Prince Edward Island but we didn't and won't again. We'll do Halifax again and this time somewhere off Dundy Bay in NB. There are cruises that do stop on the way to Quebec City, spent several days there already and to Montreal three times.
Thanks again for the PEI tour, it was nice. I'll look for more.

I've never seen RED sand! Tan, gray, black, white – but never red!

What a beautiful place! I'm so glad you got to enjoy some time away. The color of the earth at that beach is amazing. I think it would make a great soap colorant. Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great rest of the week!

It looks like you had a wonderful weekend. What a blessing. I love the huge cow. Where I grew up in South Carolina, the Bi-Lo grocery stores used to have big cows on their rooftops. I always loved seeing those cows. I grew up right beside a dairy. :)

Great photos! Have a blessed weekend. :)
