Yesterday was mild, so I took Wendy and Trey for a walk to Rainbow Haven. I haven't been there often enough lately. Not sure why.
The ocean has been very loud these past few days. High winds far out at sea and the in-coming tide push the waves higher and farther in. I was glad I was wearing my rubber boots as one second I was standing on a wide expanse of beach, and the next I was ankle deep in water.
The day started out misty and foggy, but mild. Oh, so mild !
The front part of Rainbow Haven consists of a long beach that is reached by two scenic boardwalks. In the summer the building in the background (in the video below) houses a canteen, lifeguard quarters and washrooms.
What a difference a day makes !
Today dawned much colder and bit snowy. We headed to the "Secret Beach", an unnamed hidden beach, marked only by a gravel lay-by, that is even closer to my home than Rainbow Haven.
Many folk in Eastern Passage don't even know that this lovely spot exists -- and I'm not telling them ! That'll teach 'em not to read my Blog. ;-)
A lovely slope, criss-crossed with easy-to-walk paths present an impressive view of the ocean.
Here, let me show you:
You don't blame me for keeping it secret, do you ?
