Frozen Ponds

Encouraged by this morning’s bright and wonderful conditions, I drove to Green Bay for a hike along the shore. With the tide low and the sun providing a comfortable warmth, I wandered to Beartrap Cove, which for the locals is just a hop, skip and jump from Broad Cove off Hwy 331.

Along the shore just behind the numerous little beaches and rocks are a series of fresh water ponds, which due to our recent cold weather are all frozen.
On the way back to Green Bay I stopped for a break at a nice little sun trap to watch the incoming tide splash over some rocks.

A fine day, but probably not for everyone ….

I suppose influenced by my early years in Scotland, today's weather of drizzle, dampness and heavy mist was perfect for a beach wander and hike on the islands. I am sure different weather conditions, brings out a variety of preferences to motivate people to visit a beach or wander coastal rocks, for me any weather is perfect, but my favourite is a fine day like today …..

It reminded me of a similar outing back in March 2017, see “Some may say it's a dreich day” ~
