What an excellent day at the beach. Imagine – the last weekend in September and the weather on the eastern shore was sunny and warm – also really windy, so I was glad I’d brought my fleece. Lots of people had the same good idea 🙂 – almost all of the parking spots were full. Across the boardwalk and below the dunes we ate our sandwiches (my partner makes the best!) as the tide fell and then we set off for our walk.
Martinique is one of the best sand beaches in Nova Scotia for a beach walk. Today we watched the shore birds running and fluttering in and out of the waves – always just a few feet ahead.
Far up the beach were piles of seaweed – all kinds. We found some of the green invasive, Codium fragile. It looks like a finger sponge, but it’s not.
DFO’s website suggests reporting this species (at least the French website does – not the English!), but really there is an awful lot of this around, probably not worth reporting anymore.
Imagine you are looking through binoculars to see the sweep of the beach.
