Late March and it’s still freezing

Well hello Spring! So nice of you to finally show up, maybe you can convince Winter it’s time to leave?

I remember when we lived on Vancouver Island the trees would blossom as early as February, a strange sight to me because I was still very much used to the cold winters of Newfoundland. Now that I’m back east I’m happy to report Prince Edward Island winters are very much like the winters I loved in Newfoundland, including the fact that they don’t go just because the calendar says so.

That’s not to say I’m not looking forward to actual Spring, and with April closing in I dare say it shouldn’t be too far away anymore. Here are some pictures from last week:

I caught this mink snoozing on the riverbank in Priest Pond, he had his eyes closed the whole time until he woke up from the sounds of my approach. Here are his tracks in the snow:

Erosion is a recurring theme around the island, I see it everywhere I go. This is a house on Panmure Island that’s not long for this world:

Also on Panmure Island, I drove past this abandoned house in the woods, a nice setting for a scary movie perhaps?

These last two shots were taken in Souris, close to where Marije works:

This ‘window in the rocks’ is another example of erosion, in this case of the scenic variety.


I visited Savage Harbour a few weeks ago, lovely little place, lots of sea ice when I was there 🙂

I’m not sure I will ever see it in the winter … except in your blog 🙂 I had googled Savage Harbour on WP and came across your photo, thus here I am! Looking forward to your future wanderings!
