The end of January

Here are some photos from the last two weeks of January 2017:

These shots were taken at the Confederation Bridge in Borden-Carleton. Marije and I hadn’t been there since we crossed it last fall on our move to PEI. This bridge stretches 12.9 km from PEI to mainland Canada, over the Northumberland Strait. As you can see there is currently a bit of ice on the Strait, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of it, especially closer to home.

This next shot was taken at Cape Tryon on the north side of the island, there was sea ice there too, of the slushy variety:

More ice at Covehead Beach:

One week later things felt much warmer, and looked very different:

Around this time, sunrises and sunsets often coincide with the time I’m dropping off or picking up Marije from work. Since she works close to the Souris lighthouse, I’ve got lots of lighthouse sunrises and sunsets this month:

In the above shot the lighthouse is basking in the morning sun, in the next shot it’s a scenic silhouette for a colourful backdrop:

For next week, winter is set to return with lots of cold days and maybe some new snow too!

Beautiful that lighthouse. It looks wood, is that right? All the ice on the beach is gone now? Let’s hope more is coming this week.

Yes, there are many wooden lighthouses here, in fact I’ve seen about a dozen now and they were all wooden structures.

I went for a walk on the beach this morning and the ice is already making a comeback! 🙂

Thanks Karen 🙂 There’s been a bit of a thaw here too but overnight we got fresh snow and thankfully there’s even more on the way!
