It was lightly snowing in Parrsboro today but I had to scout a beach for a hike scheduled for Wednesday. Risk Assessment and hazard reduction/elimination is first and foremost on a field leader’s mind when planning a group hike. The approach to this beach can be difficult with washed out sections but today it passed inspection. And just look at that sky!!
My intent was to head toward the dinosaur excavation site but the tide was too high. I timed my excursion to emulate Wednesday’s time frame. The beauty of this area is that it offers an alternative, Two Islands Beach.
The tide was already out enough to explore this section without worry or water lapping at my boots.
On the way back to my starting point I took full advantage of the exposed sandstone ridge. The first image covered in green seaweed is located near the cliffs, the last image in the above grouping is made from the furthest point into the Bay of Fundy looking back to where the first image was created.
Small rivulets of water competed with the sounds of wind and shallow waves lapping at the shore. The landscape always takes my breath away!
I sincerely hope you enjoyed the images from my short hike today. Happy First Monday of the year to everyone! Best wishes, Anna
Hike Assessment: I categorize this hike as easy to moderate. The approach to the beach from the parking area is the most challenging. Hiking boots with good tread and poles for balance are a must. The beach itself is a mix of pebbles, rocks and sand. If venturing out without a guide one must be familiar with the local tide schedule.
