Prince Edward Point: Late June 2022

One of the lesser explored areas of Prince Edward County lies on the southeast coast where there are no wineries, farms or villages but lots of nature.

I spent the morning exploring the area.

Black Raspberry (Rubus occidentalis)

Mossy Stonecrop (Sedum acre)

Some birds:

Herring Gull
Mallard (female)
Common Mergansers
Killdeer
Cedar Waxwing
Chipping Sparrow
American Robin
Song Sparrow
Mute Swan
Great Crested Flycatcher
Eastern Towhee

NATURE POETRY

There have been holy men who hid themselves 
Deep in the woody wilderness, and gave 
Their lives to thought and prayer, till they outlived 
The generation born with them, nor seemed 
Less aged than the hoary trees and rocks 
Around them;- William Cullen Bryant
