Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Adventure Day 30, July 28

July 29, 2021

Today is our penultimate hike, the completion of the Acadian Dyke trail from the harbour to the sea. 40 foot tides here change the harbour basin from an ocean bay to a sand bar.

Wildflowers, birds, bees and butterflies line the trail which is atop the dyke. I came poorly equipped for trail photography and image processing where modems are shared and funneled through a single phone line.

Next year I will circuit Newfoundland for 30+ days and I will be better equipped for a shoot and post daily type of nature photography.
