Now this is a sunset!


Hurricane Leslie definitely churned her way
passed PEI the following day after our arrival.


Which made really no difference to me,
because Mr. Orangie can float and I can see him like a beacon.


The sun was setting rather quickly this evening,
I suspect it always does
but it just seemed so fast for what I'm used to.


See what I mean....Mr. Orangie is always visible it seems.


I took advantage of the descending light...
and made sure I was going to sleep well tonight.


PEI...seems to have an ethereal feeling
whether travelling the roads
or galloping through the warm waters along the shoreline.


This evening was very special as Jim and I sauntered along the sands....


the sun's rays were smothering the land
while I smelled the seaweed and Jim captured this view.


Sometimes you just have to watch
and let the words melt into the horizon.

  1. Hi Y'all!

    As always I love your photos, especially on the beach.

    You've been in our thoughts as the storms have churned towards NS and PEI. I told the Human that the waters were too cold up there for the storms to be too severe. She said the waters are very warm there because of some Gulf Stream. Very confusing since you're to the north and the Gulf is to the south.

    Just wanted to stop by and see how y'all are doin'. Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    1. Our province has always been affected by the Gulf Stream not to the extent that it affects your world but in a different way. Hurricanes are directed at our land every year, this year with fingers crossed we won't be deluged. The strange thing is the weather was very warm from spring onwards so the waters became warmer and new fish and birds are showing up. It's kinda cool but a bit worrisome because Old Man Winter will do them in....I guess it's Mother Nature's way of dealing with this global warming.

  2. So very lovely, walking along the water's edge with that beautiful sunset. And you don't even need to wear a jacket because you have that wonderful hair to keep you warm.
