After 21 air miles and 48 hours of time elapsing from home to our accommodation on Prince Edward Island, the temperature has dropped from 27C [autumn] to 12C [spring].
Just wonderful to be with our son and family again, with the added benefit of experiencing the onset of spring. Coming from the tropics it is incomprehensible that winter has such a strong grip. It is also incredible that just 2 weeks ago, ice was still floating down the Northumberland Strait and being thrust up onto the northern beaches.

Wet snow fell the week before our arrival but the locals now believe spring is well and truly on its way.
This set of pictures were taken on the 3.5 km envigorating walk in parkland opposite our sons unit.
On day 2 we went exploring the coastline to find ice still thawing on the beach. It was damp, windy cold and as expected, not very successful. Fantastic though to experience this weather.
Day 3 brought sunshine. Initially, just a tad cool but the sun's rays brought warmth by mid-afternoon.
A visit to Queen's Park and downtown Charlottetown saw us finding the first real clues to spring arriving.
I was excited to spot this bluejay.
Late afternoon, we drove to the pretty harbour village of Victoria.
The lobster season gets underway on May 1st.
Just thrilled with this capture of Victoria, taken from a speeding vehicle, using my 30X zoom.
This morning, day 4 we are back to rain, but I am sure I'll still manage to keep my camera busy. It is going to be interesting to see the progress of spring over the fortnight that we are here.
I would love to read your comment.
