Woodland Plants, Caterpillers and Sunsets

August 18, 2022

Laura and I enjoyed a mid day walk through the deeply shaded woods of Smiley's Provincial Park on a very hot day. Most birds have left already so the late flowering wildflowers and orchids are the targets of the walk.

I also visited Peggy's Cove for the sunset but it was not spectacular. For reasons I don't as yet comprehend sunrises are always better than sunsets especially sunrises at Crystal Crescent Beach in December.
