We had a few questions about our recent hike at Greenwich National Park
(click to watch a short film about this incredible place)
Joanne wondered how far it is from our place – it’s about a 45 min drive.
She was right about the abundant wildlife in the park. Woodland birds, owls, waterfowl, muskrats, beavers, rabbits and fox. And I never saw so many dragonflies but they wouldn’t pose for me 🙂
But the bunnies were very obliging! Rabbits are plentiful on PEI but you don’t usually get this close.
As we walked on the boardwalk over the fresh-water pond, Roger spotted a little dark head moving through the water, trailing a V-shaped wake.
A closer look – a muskrat but I’m not sure. Too small for a beaver I think, although there were beaver dams in the pond.
And Cindy, having walked the trail herself, was wondering if we had a moon to guide us back the 2.5 k from the beach to the parking lot.
Yes we did!
We left the beach and headed back over the dunes
with trailing clouds of glory above
and beneath us!
Then through the gloaming (do you know that term?)
and the quickly darkening wood to the entrance to the trail.
We made it easily to our car but next time we’ll bring a flashlight 🙂
Now, I must scoot – I’m off to town – it’s library day!
