Well I wouldn't exactly want to spend an entire day at the beach. It's not my style and when we go to the beach - we are walking up and down the beach - no sitting down for us! However the wind has been so bad that you wouldn't (or couldn't) sit for very long. It is like being in the Sahara Desert with a massive sand storm happening!!!
The wind was back yesterday and got progressively worse as the day went on. Sparky must be getting used to the wind because she didn't really fuss yesterday. Sammy was more nervous because the window was open and you could really hear the wind. But it was stuffy with the windows all closed!!!!
As promised, here are some pictures of the roads around here and of course - the beach.
This is the road to the area I am staying. Notice the sign - Road Not Plowed.
|Cousins Shore Road (note the bilingual signs!)|
Not that long ago (OK - several months) - the roads around here looked like this..........
|This road was plowed - mine was NOT!|
|This is my road on May 4 - totally impassable|
And this is how close Robin is................
|The sign for my road and in the distance, the sign for Robin's road|
|The road into the development|
|Same road, different view|
|Same road - closer to the beach|
|The road to the house - which one do I take??? No worries - they both lead to the same place. Weird? Hard to see in the picture, but the grade is STEEP.|
|The "roads" in the development|
|The road from the beach|
Oh yes - it looks like they just plunked houses down on a grassy slope!!!! Although we have running water, toilets and all that. It is very basic, but yet we have garbage service too!!!!
|Small parking are at the bottom of the road for public access to the beach|
I see lots of NO PARKING signs on the private roads so my guess in the summer, parking becomes an issue down there.
Have to keep checking on that new house being built. As I was walking back from the beach, more equipment was being moved out.
|Equipment leaving on the road|
|That's a LOT of dirt - better check this out!!!!|
|I thought so - a full basement!|
Can you see the guy to the right??? Yep - I checked later - full basement. The footings are done. I guess I will watch it being built while I am here - well partially anyway.
While I was out the other day, I see I have new neighbours.
|More set up|
And now to the beach...............
The girls and the rocks. Honestly Little Sammy has a thing for the camera. She won't look directly at the camera - she looks away or down!!!! Silly girl - how are we supposed to get a full grasp of her cuteness????
|Sparky and Sammy|

|Looking west at Cousins Shore|
|Looking east at Cousins Shore|
|Looking south back to the development|
There is another development to the west of me. I saw this the other day - the staircase to nowhere!!!!
|Staircase to nowhere|
|Erosion in that area - I wouldn't want my house in that area!!!!!|
|Neat shaped rocks|
|Rock formations - awesome|
|How to make a quilt with that design????|
|Not all rocks are red in PEI|
|Lots and lots of red and blue rocks|
When we walk - I have to laugh. Sparky walks like this............
|Mom - I'll lead the way just in case there is danger!|
|Mom - I'll stick right beside you just in case there is danger!|
In order to get to part of the beach, we had to cross a little river/creek with a very strong current. Sparky plunged right in - Sammy - help me!!!!!!
|Sparky wading no problem through the creek|
|"Ah - finally - a shallow area - I will be fine - I will be fine"|
|"Almost there, almost there"|
|"Just a few more steps, just a few more steps!!!!"|
Sammy is the worst on the beach. She is a beachcomber - what junk can she find to sniff and what junk can she find to EAT!!!!! That dog is a scavenger. Sparky has calmed down a whole lot since her ordeal with vestibular!!!!
Sammy even attempted to roll in something. My yelling voice has gotten a LOT of practice since we started walking on the beach.
|Little Sammy attempting to roll in something|
|"My" house from the road in - if you can call it a road.|
It has started to rain as predicted for today. I am hearing a buzzing noise and there is my wacko neighbour with the grass trimmer trying to finish trimming around the trailer!!!!
Since it is supposed to rain today - sounds like a perfect day to stay inside, curl up with a book or do a bit of sewing. Those stories are for tomorrow. I wonder what those clay roads are like in the rain????? Are we stuck here until it dries up???
Have an awesome day!!!!!!!!
