Excursion du Mer

     The ferry to PEI didn't leave until 8pm, and at the last minute we decided to go on a sight seeing tour of the cliffs and caves. I had never been in a zodiac, and was perhaps just a bit nervous, but once on our way, I was fine. Our tour guide, Kevin, was bilingual, and was able to keep his french and english passengers well informed.

This adventure is best told in pictures.....

And we are off....

It was eerie but beautiful in the caves

Not the greatest shot, but this rock was alive
with Cormorants.  Their feathers are not waterproof,
and they perch on the rocks holding their wings out to the side to dry.

Wave and tide action are eroding the cliffs all around the island

We entered here and went right through to the other side.

The whole excursion took about an hour.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am always interest in the rock formations
anywhere I travel.
In another life I would like to have been
a geologist, or an oceanographer, or a hermit on a beautiful island
where I could live in peace, and have the time to paint,
walk the sandy beaches looking for beach glass and special stones.
I could walk the beaches all day
because fibro would not get in my way.
I would kayak along the shoreline
and perhaps catch a glimpse of a whale
or not.
My fingers could drag in the water, and feel it's coolness,
and I would wipe my brow
and be thankful.
WAKE UP BONNIE and publish this blog..........
......but it was a nice little daydream.
Till next time......

    1. Thanks Grace. It certainly doesnn't compare with your trip to Paris, but it was wonderful all the same.

  2. Such a wonderful adventure and I enjoyed your poem.
    Thank you!

    1. Thanks Margie. It was an adventure, but we crammed too much into too little time. However, it was wonderful to see the islands.

  3. We all have our daydreams, Bonnie, and at least your holiday gave you lots of wonderful memories to daydream about. :-)

    1. Yes Perpetua, I am glad I took so many pictures, to help me remember the sites.

  4. I can't decide what I like the most--your photos, the tale of your day, or your daydream. All in all, they made a most wonderful post, Bonnie!

    1. Thank you Kathy. It is taking me a while to get through our trip, but I so enjoyed the scenery.

  5. It certainly was a nice trip, and a nice daydream, too, Bonnie. I often wonder if I was a cloistered nun in another life - you know, peace, quite, silent contemplation...alone. Ah, just another daydream. <3

    1. Day dreams...I used to think that I should have been a nun. I thought it would be neat to be in quiet contemplation each day, and then I wouldn't have to get supper ready....:).

  6. Hi Bonnie
    Just stopping by to say "hi"
    Hope all is well ~
