Easy walk today as we did all the loops at the Cole Harbour Heritage Park. These short, gentle trails loop over old farm fields and woods. There are some great views of Cole Harbour; and looking east to the Atlantic Ocean one can see the Atlantic View Trail.
One of the many alders we passed was full of iridescent, metallic blue alder flea beetles. These beetles (and later their larvae) mine the leaves, but since leaves are not out yet, they must be out very recently – in anticipation of the leaves!
