On Monday I bundled up and headed out to the beach.
I never used to go the shore in the winter.
As a summer loving swimmer, I didn’t think that the winter beach held any attraction.
But my attitude has changed.
Now, I love the sea in every season.
Of course, beach attire in January is quite different from summer attire,
but if you are dressed very warmly, a winter trip to the seaside can be fascinating.
The sea waters surrounding PEI are just beginning to freeze.
It’s mesmerizing to watch the surface rise and fall in long undulating lines
as waves roll in under the layer of snow and ice particles.
Once in a while a wave will break through and crash over.
But that won’t happen for much longer ~ soon the surface will completely harden
and the Island will be iced in.
By February, huge ice formations will jut up along the shore
and there will be whole new terrains to explore.
No matter what season, there’s never a dull moment!
You have to be a hardy soul to enjoy it though.
Have I talked you into it yet??
A blazing fire and hot chocolate is waiting afterward for any intrepid explorers who sign up.
I’ll take names in the comments 🙂
