I've been awestruck by the effects of Mother Nature and her powerful forces on the northern coastline of Prince Edward Island this holiday season. On a clear, sunny day I was driving from Stanhope to Brackley Beach, and I did a double-take. An honest-to-goodness double-take. You can now see the ocean from Shoreline Drive at Covehead. What was once there, a dune, no longer exists. There is a tremendous amount of water in the barachois pond, and a clear view of the Gulf of St Lawrence. Wonders never cease.
