Keji Seaside – in the wind

Kejimkujik National Park - Seaside

Excellent day hiking at Kejimkujik Seaside.  We walked the trail counter clock-wise out around Port Joli Head and that direction was a most excellent choice because the wind was really blowing!  Gusts up to 50 k (at a guess) and it was cold!  But with the wind at our backs, the ground frozen and the sun shining we had a first rate day.

To start we headed into the wind across a large wetland/bog typical of this coastal area.  The spruce are scrubby and often low and spreading under the influence of the constant wind.

Generally the path is in very good condition with gravel, and boardwalk. In a some sections of the trail is beaten dirt. We were fortunate that the temperature was below freezing so the ground was frozen is these places, since it can sometimes be soft and mucky.
