Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Adventure Day 11, July 9

July 10, 2021

Tonight is the night that Post Tropical Storm Elsa hits us with all its fury. Advocate Harbour is slightly south of the projected path of the storm's centreline.  Elsa's frontal boundary is apparent in some photos and there is an overall tranquil feeling of doom and foreboding. We slept through the whole event. It was mostly wind with some isolated power outages.

The Eastern Bluebird's continue to feed their young with ease as both parents deliver goodies at a regular pace. Nest cleanliness is also attended to after most food deliveries.
