|There isn't really much to say about this Sunday morning other than it was frosty and that the wind had stopped. Ah…a morning without wind. Peace!|
I loaded Molly into the Jeep and went to Herring Cove. There is no better place on Campobello to enjoy a morning walk in the rising sun, and it is only 3 minutes from our home. The tide was down but had started to return. The sand was still wet providing a hard surface to walk on.
While I strolled along the waters edge, Molly preferred to prowl along the upper edge where the yellow grass begins. We walked on and on and almost reached the edge of the Roosevelt Park border, before we turned around. Sun was glittering on the calm sea. The only sound being the rhythmic splash of the waves rolling onto the sandy beach. I noticed that the beach was incredibly clean. There was very little debris along the flotsam. Seemed like the winter storms had done a great job cleaning up the beach. At least no damage here at Herring Cove.
Walking back to the car I noticed a growing cloud cover moving in. Already the light had changed. Actually it was a great light for taking more pictures. Old dried up trees are standing here close to the beach.
They probably died decades ago. Behind the beach lies Lake Glensevern. It is home to beavers and many water fowls. Once it was the swimming pool for the Roosevelt family who had a dock here. It is the only water body where water temperatures reach above 68F in the summer. The water is brackish as the storms occasionally push sea water over top of the beach and into the lake.
The tide was coming up fast now. My foot prints along the waters edge were already covered and under water.
What a great walk this was.
Thanks for visiting!
