|I'm all out of energy after this time every night!|
Sharing a place you love as much as we love this shore is a nerve racking blessing. We want our visitors to love it as much as we do and to see the same beauty we see. Some people arrive on a gray, rainy day to what can feel like the end of the earth. I'm sure they wonder to themselves why we come here every summer. Our first weary travelers this summer arrived to.... squishy wet grass, gray skies, and air filled with rain and mosquitoes. Not the ideal vacation destination unless reading a book wrapped in a blanket is your ideal vacation. Of course, you could always just forget about the rain and celebrate Canada Day 150 like we did!
|What rain? Bring on the parade and the tall ships!|
|When drying the clothes takes longer....relax,|
lay down in the hammock and read.
So in no particular order here are some things we want our first timers to appreciate about our little piece of heaven on earth.
-the stars.....because there is very little light pollution up here we can see millions and millions of stars on a clear night! Just lay down on the ground, let your eyes adjust and wait. Last night I laid down in our field with my daughter and two grandsons and watched meteor showers....awesome!

-the tides....low tide is unlike anywhere else. Walking on the sandbars is one of our favorite things about this place! High tide is for jet skiing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, or paddle boarding but low tide is what we all love the most! Even if we are just sitting in our beach chairs reading, napping or talking.

-the sky! The sky is huge up here and the colors are vivid! It is spectacular, even during a storm.
