Island Snapshots v.5: North Cape

A major positive of living in a remote corner of PEI is the abundance of beautiful scenery.  I spend more evenings than not discovering and exploring some new-to-me shores and vistas.  Prior to moving here, I hadn't spent much time in the western part of PEI but it is just as lovely and breathtaking as the rest of the little Island that I love.

One of my favourite places to go for a walk (and especially to watch the sunset) is the westernmost tip of the Island, North Cape.  It is home to wild cliffs, crashing waves, a trail that passes along the shore and through the woods, not to mention the constantly beating blades of the well-placed windmills (it is the. windiest. spot. ever.).  I often have it all to myself, although I suspect that will change as summer visitors come and discover this lonely corner of the isle where the Gulf of Saint Laurence meets the Northumberland Strait.  
I never tire of the smell of the salt in the air and the sound of waves crashing on the shoreline, it is a combination that always brings me back to a place of peace and relaxation = bliss.
