Had a great afternoon yesterday. After lunch we bundled up in wool socks, hoodies, caps, gloves and winter jackets and headed in the direction of Lockeport with our cameras.
At Lockeport beach you can see Gull Rock Light.
The waves are crashing on the rocks and spraying upward.
I think these two were used to tourists with cameras, they just kind of hung around, ignoring us and posing.
The Crescent Beach Centre, sits near the edge of the beach with a fabulous view. Right now it's closed for the winter season, but I know when it's open the view from the observation room is fantastic! So....... when it opens and you are in the area, stop on in and check it out, and walk the beach.
We took a drive into Lockeport, Larry was sure there was a place you could drive out to a rock. Well we found it [but you really can't drive out on a rock] I think it's a park like place, since there are a few picnic table there. Of course we parked in the wrong place and went the more difficult way, where I slid down a grassy path with no harm done. You can look over toward West Head.
I took a lot of photos of Larry today, but I like this one - you know it's got that silhouette feeling going on against the sky.
From Lockeport we headed towards Sable River, first side road was Osbourne Harbour, where we stopped at the wharf. This is Carter's Light.
So we are off again, heading in the direction of Sable River. Oops...another detour, Louis Head Beach. We haven't been here in years and I can't believe that it has become so built up with cottages!
This is one of Larry's, he insisted I use it and it is rather cool and unique. From here we decided it was getting late and time to head for home and think about supper. So out to highway 103 we headed and onward to home. A quick stop at Sobeys for something for supper. "Date afternoon" should not require either of us to cook, so chicken it was. Easy and fast. A lazy evening of pj's and tv [Larry snoozing in the lazyboy].
We really have some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere around - truly hidden treasures. If you are bored or just have a few extra hours, head out and walk one of the beaches, life can't get much better.
The sun is shining, the rest of the household has risen, so I guess it's time to get on with some work. Enjoy the day!
