I headed east on this day to visit Prequ’ile Provincial Park.
The best trail for shorebirds is this one:

Among the changing months, May stands confest
The sweetest, and in fairest colours dressed!
Soft as the breeze that fans the smiling field;
Sweet as the breath that opening roses yield. – James Thomson (1700–25)
