Happy Thanksgiving!

On this Canadian Thanksgiving Day, Stacy and I had a lot to be thankful for! The beautiful weather held on for one more day, making it a perfect time to hike along a variety of trails on the northern side of the Island. The Parks Canada system has really impressed us with the well maintained recreation areas and their efforts to preserve unique natural and historical landmarks within the country.

On one of the Greenwich trails, we walked over a freshwater pond via a floating boardwalk, emerged onto a virtually deserted beach, and then splashed around in the Gulf of the St. Lawrence. Well, we didn't really splash around so much as we played chicken with the waves and then dipped our fingers in the chilly water. The trail was very educational and we learned a lot about the fragile habitat as well as the parabolic sand dunes and the unique counter-ridges that are visible here on this side of P.E.I.

We were thankful for every minute.

Happy Thanksgiving!

(They eat turkey here, too. We, however, decided to have seafood.)
