July on PEI

This is our very first July on PEI and we’re loving it, here are some pictures of our summer so far:

Souris’ Canada Day fireworks were beautiful, we enjoyed the entire show from our deck.

These are shots from our first summer boat tour, we were hoping to see some whales on a tour out of North Lake, but no luck there, we did see lots of gannets and a small group of porpoises though:

Since the boat tour also offered fishing, many people reeled in mackerel after mackerel. It wasn’t long before one of the gannets got caught up in the fishing line when it tried to make off with a hooked fish. A few exciting moments later the bird was free again, and none the worse for wear:

Lupines have been decorating the roadside of late, they’re numerous and very pretty:

This is Marije on the new boardwalk in Greenwich, PEI NP:

A yellow warbler was hunting bugs near the boardwalk:

We’ve already enjoyed a few days at the beach:

And last but not least, last night we enjoyed a display of the northern lights:

And now you’re up to date!

And the warbler has a lot of cousins, like the the common yellowthroat we saw as well, a very handsome little bird 🙂
