There was still more to discover at the beach on Prince Edward Island, including one big surprise. (Different day, different beach.) If you want to read the captions to share the plot of that day, you’ll need to click on the first photo and then follow the arrows.
I’ve heard of Italian ice cream and Gelato is delicious, but these things can be carried too far!
On one side of the inlet, everything was copacetic.
The beach refuse was slowly rusting away right according to schedule.
At first I thought this big crab was attacking the other one, but after playing the heroine and separating them, I figured out the truth.
Then far far away on the sand bar across the inlet, we noticed something going on.
The cormorants were collecting in a long strung-out line
dealing with a few pushy seagulls, but totally leaving alone another black blob a bit down the way on the sand near the water. Was it??
I “upped” the power on my zoom and sure enough, it was a bald eagle.
He was taking a little time out for quiet contemplation, as were we.
Wish I’d had a tripod, as at 120X magnification, it’s impossible to stay steady enough for a good shot. Nonetheless, here’s the bald guy in his favorite sideways pose. Quite a beach treat on my last full day on PEI!!!
And now, to answer the questions:
Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewerly?
Yes. I have owned tons of rocks! We used them to make art lamps and I have always loved collecting rocks, including the ones I used to make creches the year before last. I was a jewelry maker before I moved to Mexico and so also had trays of unset gems. You are barking up the right tree with this question, Cee!
What is your greatest strength or weakness?
Chocolate! Guess it qualifies as a weakness. Definitely not a strength.
What makes you feel grounded?
Writing or creating art.
Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?
I actually prefer most foods cold so would choose to eat cold food over hot. Ice cream!!!
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I was so grateful for time spent with Dianne and Andy, my wonderful hosts on Price Edward Island. now I look forward to eighteen more days spent with Forgottenman as well as other friends and family members. Then I’ll be grateful to go home to see Morrie, Frida and Diego–and hear the tales of my house sitters Ian and Pen, for whom I am also grateful.
