In case you think we stayed on the SAME beach all the time - we did not. This picture was taken a couple of miles away from the beach we were staying at. That was the day that we geocached on this other beach. You can see that it is a much more protected beach. It is actually a channel that the fishing boats came through.

We did get down to the beach a couple of times later in the day. ACK - I miss those walks!!!!
|Late afternooon walk on the beach|
Oh yes - this day was pretty funny. Sammy and Sparky (who received absolutely NO ATTENTION from me) got friendly with a couple of people on the beach and rather than follow ME - they started to follow these two ladies!!!!
|Sparky and Sammy - running away!!!!!|
|Late afternoon on the beach|
|Rock colour is just spectacular|
Another time when we had walked around the rocks further down our beach, we came across another small stream and another net.

I hung around until they came back and then I went to chat with them. Yes - they had a couple of nets - they set up the nets to catch a small fish called gaspereau. Apparently the fish swim UP the stream so the nets were placed to catch the fish which are then used as lobster bait!!!! There you go - the mystery of those nets on the beach SOLVED!!!!!
While on the beach - we had time to kill. Time to try another USIE. Those girls were NOT interested at all. I meant to get a better picture by a HUMAN, not the self timer, but we just didn't get a chance.
|Me, Sammy and Sparky!|

|The girls had so MUCH FUN!!!!!!|
That little stream changed EVERY DAY. Look at the picture above with the truck and see how DEEP the channel (the edges of the sand are) compared to this picture!!!
|Edges of the stream are SHALLOW|

I have ONE more post from PEI and then it is over. Maybe I am trying to hang onto that vacation. It was one of the best vacations (besides my bike trips) that I have ever had. Can't wait to see what I do next year!!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!
