Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Adventure Day 17, July 15

July 16, 2021


...and what a night it was! 32mm of rain fell in about 4-6 hours with almost continuous lightning and thunder. We haven't experienced active weather like this since living in Manitoba.

Th entrance road to our cottage was blocked with a 20 metre wide river, perhaps 200mm deep. Since it was packed gravel underneath I drove through it with no problem.

Eastern Bluebird

The bluebird parents are continuing to get warier and warier suggesting an imminent emergence of young birds within a day or two.
