About Today’s Photo:
We spent a week in a cozy cottage on the northern shore of Prince Edward Island in the Canadian Maritimes. This is the view looking east along our beach near sunset. PEI is made up mostly of red sandstone, so the beaches, dirt roads, and farm fields all sport a distinctive red color.
