My World, Tuesday

I'm on the road, and don't have many photos with me, so continuing to reach into my archives to participate in the My World Tuesday meme.

During the spring, summer, and fall I travel the coastline of Cape Breton to bird and beachcomb, sometimes to camp.  My friend and I approach on foot, as well as kayak to barren beaches.  On this beautiful fall afternoon, in celebration of my birthday, we spent the day at Point Michaud Provincial Park.

It was a blustery, but sunshiney day, with lots of migrating shorebirds to watch.

The wind was so strong, I had to hold the birding scope with 2 hands, but it didn't bother the birds one teeny, weeny bit!

I love how the grasses contributed to my delight with their artistic charm.

Back at the parking lot, I came across this site.  What is wrong with this picture?

What could the province have been thinking?

No, that center post is not removable!

Hmmm. Love your "what's wrong with this picture?" Ha! I think some government workers know the rules but cannot figure out why the rules are there. I guess someone needed to draw a detailed plan with detailed explanations. :) That really is a funny but very sad photo.

Having said that, the rest of the area ia beautiful!

It would be fun to kayak and bird along this grand shore. Happy birding always.

Blocked. But what a fun way to celebrate your birthday! I love the circles on the grass

Good thinking on the part of the park's department, eh? However, the area looks wonderful for photographers on two feet.
