come for a walk with us down our beautiful, private beach.
oh man i love that pic! check out the waves jumping in the sunlight as they roll into the shore. and be sure to pay attention to the sky - we have some of the most beautiful sky that i have ever seen. and i have been to Hawaii, Australia, the North Pole, all over the United States, England...nothing compares to the gorgeous cape breton sky. i can go into a trance looking at our sky!
this pic is looking down the left side of our beach.
and this is looking back to the cliff, the right side of the beach. if you click - you can see where truckdura is parked. we call our ford f150 truckdura because our crappy camper van is named vandura. i am blathering - back to the beach. and the sky - just look at that sky!
here we are and getting close to the mouth of where the framboise river empties into the ocean.
as we have mentioned in previous posts and comments - our river had backed up because the mouth of the framboise river, which empties into the ocean, was washed in. the opening for the river into the ocean is just a small opening and after a serious storm washes too much seaweed, sand and other debris - the opening gets closed up.
here is the opening on a normal day and a family enjoying a picnic on the other side of the beach. it's a pretty tiny opening!
here's another shot:
and here is a pic of my gardening/beachcombing boots - they're something eh?
on this day that we went down, the municipality had sent out a backhoe to re-dig the trench for the river to drain:
here's another shot of the new trench:
finally the river can empty into the ocean:
the river washing into the ocean:
here's a shot from the other side:
and of course....jambaloney in a trance doing what he loves most - fishing!
