Island off ParrsboroIsland off ParrsboroIsland off Parrsboro

The sand bar that connects this island to the mainland is covered by the water at high tide. AVG tidal rise is 34'
Day 11: Decided to take a day of rest today. Trucks did not even move, but we did wash the windows, inside & outside, on the trailer. Gena & Bob made two walks on the beach in search of sea glass. Found a few pieces, several interesting sea shells, and a couple really neat rocks. It was cool and breezy all day with hardly a cloud in the sky. I guess we walked a couple of miles on the beach. The water went out so far, Bob was able to go out to the water’s edge and see the light house in Parrsboro which is several miles west of our campground. Gena saw a Canadian Bald Eagle (she only got a photo from the rear !!) flying overhead. The CG manager let us use his phone to make reservations for Mon-Wed nights at Baddeck Cabot Trail CG west of Baddeck, NS. It is about 200 miles north & east of here. We’ll make a stop somewhere for provisions.
