I had some time to kill in the Charlottetown area before catching the ferry back to Nova Scotia so I approached an employee at a tourist bureau to ask for some suggestions on where to find a beach or picnic park to enjoy the afternoon. The person I spoke with suggested I try Argyle Shore Provincial Park which was about an hour away. The drive was pretty scenic with rolling fields, old homes with large farmlands and, eventually, some coastline. I arrived at Argyle Shore Provincial Park and was, at first, a little disappointed to discover that there wasn’t really much of a sandy beach. It was a strip of rocky beach that could only be reached by descending a huge set of stairs. I was interested in visiting one of those long, sandy beaches PEI is known for. However, once I descended those stairs and started exploring the area, I realized it was in fact very beautiful. A small waterfall fell from the cliffs at the bottom of the stairs, the red coastline gleamed in the afternoon sun and contrasted with the very green landscape away from the coast. I spent about an hour there admiring the view, having a picnic and relaxing in the sun. Turns out, it made for the perfect afternoon outing to get away from the city!
