Happy Canada Day! Despite the beautiful weather, the beach was not overrun with people.
I found the perfect spot, up by the dunes and far enough away from all the action that I felt some peace.
When I first arrived, the tide had already began to slip out, leaving more and more beach in its path.
The task at hand - map out the outline for the online scroll saw class.
My new "office"
As time went on, the ocean moved further and further away.
The sea left behind small pools of water in the low spots, which heated up quickly in the mid day sun.
In the far distance, there was a surfer in the waves.
You can see the surfer in the back ground, catching a small wave.
The surfer rode the wave into the shore, almost every time, and headed back out for more.
The waves pulled all the way out of the cape, leaving several warm pools in its wake.
Some of the pools were knee high, as you could see the children playing in one in the background.
I took a walk to the ocean's edge. I loved the beautiful patterns left in the sand from the waves.
As I got closer to the edge of the sea, the sand was smooth and hard.
More wave patterns in the sand.
Things really began to quiet down, as the families went home.
A view from the water's edge of my designated spot. It is the little speck near the middle at the bottom of the dune.
While walking in the water, I saw a baby crab.
I put him on the sand.
There was a mini-stream flowing from the dunes to the ocean.
More water pools. This one past your ankles and the water was as warm as a spa.
Beautiful ripples in the sand.

A view of the shore from standing on a sand bar.
Beautiful and gentle waves.
The houses on the north shore.
More houses on the cape.
