After a night with heavy rain and thunder the day turned out
mild and sunny.
Perfect for the daily walk along our favourite beach.
The crowds were definitely thinner this season because
the ferry connection to the mainland via Deer Island never came to life.
The boat company did not get the new barge going in time.
Subsequently it was a bad summer for many businesses who lost out on a lot of potential guests,
because not everyone is comfortable with taking the land route through Maine
to get to Campobello Island.
So, we mostly had the beaches for ourselves.
Just a few people here and there and they never walk as far as we do anyway.
A driftwood pile adorns the beach just waiting for the
next storm to take it apart.
A fishing vessel out on the bay, the island Grand Manan in the background.
Every year we are considering taking the ferry to see how it looks like over there.
So far it has not happened.
We are always too busy with work during the summer.
Off leash time!
Dixie has a great time digging deep holes into the soft sand.
And we appreciate when she digs here than on our lawn.
At home there was a newly backed batch of ginger cookies waiting for us.
Soon there will be Halloween and Pumpkin time!
Fall is here.
