The story behind the image

The maritime provinces at the Canadian east coast are probably among the most underrated regions of the country, at least for visitors from overseas. We were surprised to see many very different places and landscapes on our trip from Halifax to Montreal.

Yesterday I shared an image showing a giant lobster in Shediac, New Brunswick. Here’s an image from the same day, just a 30 minute drive away from the lobster. It’s the stunning Dune de Bouctouche which can be accessed from the Irving Eco-centre in Saint-Édouard-de-Ken. The beach can be reached by passing the sensitive dune on this stilted pathway.

I like this image for the nice, gentle curves of the pathway that illustrate the harmonic, gentle flow of nature and life in general.
