Bird's Eye View  by Chrissy Summers

Bird's Eye View

Panmure Island, PEI

Panmure Island is a gem on Prince Edward Island that is often overlooked. It is less crowded than some of the other beaches on the island, and there is a small grill/patio at one end of the beach, with a lighthouse, giftshop and quaint picnic area at the other end. Great for swimming, riding the waves on the boogie board, searching for shells, tossing around the ball or just relaxing in the sun.

Hirtle’s Beach by Julie Sheffield

Hirtle’s Beach

Hirtle’s Beach

One of my favourite beaches is Hirtle’s Beach, on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. In addition to the sandy beach and waves that make it a great place to relax, it gives access to a wonderful hiking trail, Gaff Point. This photo was taken on return from a hike at Gaff Point and gives a great view of the beach.

Braeshore , NS

This scene greeted me early one morning as I sat with my coffee. One can almost feel the fresh morning air and experience the peacefulness of the moment. Life is a series of moments, enjoy each one.

Port Maitland Beach sunset by Larry Sibley

Port Maitland Beach

The sunset is a moment to be cognizant of the extraordinary and cosmic reality of existing here on planet earth, in orbit 100 million miles from our nearby star. In this photo, the lens flare gives the impression that my friend Nancy has just been teleported onto the surface of the planet.

Sunrise at Beach Meadows Beach by Elaina Gaetan

Sunrise at Beach Meadows Beach

Beach Meadows, Queens County, Nova Scotia

I love to walk the beach early every morning during the summer months. And although every sunrise is different, they are all beautiful. Before the extreme heat of the day, the ocean breeze is crisp and refreshing. Apparently the early bird really does get the worm.

Four Pipers Playing by Kirsti Ann Burnett

Four Pipers Playing

Martinique Beach

It's hard not to anthropomorphize certain animals, in particular these semipalmated sandpipers seemingly playing the ever-popular children's beach game of keep-away – running away from the tide as it slowly moves in swell after swell and wave after wave. As Nova Scotia’s longest sandy beach, the sands at Martinque Beach on the beautiful Eastern Shore of the province (where I was fortunate enough to have grown up!) leave room for both humans and animals alike – to coexist and “play” among the waves. Whether it be seals in the surf, seagulls in the sky, or pipers playing like they were this crisp spring morning, I never turn down an opportunity to do a beach walk at Martinque, where each experience offers new wildlife to be enjoyed!

reflection by Lisa Richard

reflection

St. Martins NB

I work at the Fundy Trail Parkway. On this evening I had a co-worker tell me that she had seen a shark at Long Beach close to shore. With excitement of the possibility of seeing a shark, when my shift ended, I raced to the Caves Beach in St Martins. Instead of seeing the shark I got to see this amazing relaxing, zen reflective Bay of Fundy that I could resist photographing it. I completely forgot about the shark.

The End of A Perfect Day by Christina MacDonald

The End of A Perfect Day

Inverness Beach, Cape Breton, NS

Our growing family of grandchildren gathers every summer for a Kids Summer Party at Inverness Beach. Three generations gather from all over the province to share this special time of sunshine, playing in the sand and frolicking in the water, eating, laughing and loving along with necessary Pinata Battle. This day strengthens the bonds the youngest cousins who with distance, school and work, share with one another. This little girl is tuckered out and at peace with the world as the sun sets on a perfect and joyful day!

Red Point Provincial Park, PEI

Red, Green and Blue, primary colours for a primary destination. Our tenth anniversary demanded a special journey. For some they might choose a Caribbean Island with their white sandy beaches. You don't need to leave Canada for beautiful beaches and warm, friendly people. We chose Red Point Provincial Park on the eastern tip of PEI. On our special day, the sun shone, the temperature rose and we spent morning to night on this beautiful beach. Under the shadow of the red cliffs, green pines and blue sky we recalled why we love the Maritimes (and each other).

Finding My Island by Janice Sutherland

Finding My Island

Caribou Island

We all love islands. If we aren’t on them or boating to them, we are looking out at them in our bays and straits. And we have only to wait for the receding tide to create our very own small islands of sand.

A walk on our favourite beach is made even more special by this display of shells. Someone has been placing them on our railing for the past few years and it is still a mystery who is doing it.

Suspending the Summer by John Frost

Suspending the Summer

Hall's Harbour Nova Scotia

We live in Wolfville and several times a summer we go out of our way to "chase a sunset." On the final day of summer this year, we headed out to Hall's Harbour to catch the final glimpses of light as it sank into the horizon. It was so calm. The kids love to climb and jump along the huge boulders that line the beach - nature's jungle gym!

If Dumbo were a Dog by Kirsti Burnett

If Dumbo were a Dog

Martinique Beach

There were no heights Tali the Toller wouldn't "fly" to in pursuit of her favourite ball. This photo in particular encapsulates her channeling Dumbo the elephant, while playing at her happy place - Martinique Beach. Tali was as free-spirited as she was friendly, and never passed up an opportunity for a salty adventure. Sadly, Tali passed over the Rainbow Bridge suddenly and at the young age of 7-years-old this September, and now beach walks aren't quite the same without our furry little family member running through the sand and jumping through the air in the ultimate game of fetch, but we know she always joins our beach adventures in spirit as she continues to run free and fly high on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
