Dyer's Bay Shoreline

The waterfront closest to our campground up the Bruce is at Dyer's Bay, an old cottage community just to the east of us.  There's a single long narrow road through the village, eventually reaching the lighthouse out at Cabot Head, but that's a long trip for another day.

On a sunny summer afternoon it's a stunning view down the shore, to the distant cliffs beyond.

 But do you recognize the vegetation covering the cobbles in the foreground?

Perhaps this is a little easier to see, and you can read the warning sign someone has posted.

Yes, it's a carpet of Poison Ivy, its three leaves hanging down as they usually do, and some already turning the bright red of fall.

It's an equally nice view to the north, with an equally Poison Ivy covered beach.

And just for a bonus, here's another view of Hope Bay, 20 miles to the south.  It's a shallow bay close to shore, so there are a number of buoys out there for tying up motorboats, and one very nice looking sailboat.

  2. Your photos are stirring my hitch-itch & restless nature to drive right up to the Bruce again & look at some properties. Such a peaceful spiritual place that whole area is.

  5. Beautiful views except for the poison oak, it jumps on me. After all these years, my husband does not trust me when I call a similar plant Virginia Creeper. it has five I point out but he's not listening. We eliminated our by salting the ground heavily on the plant base. Other things will grow but it's better than using poison.

    Have a blessed week.

  7. Not a plant that we have to contend with over here, I'm pleased to say. But then again we don't have those views either!

  13. How cruel nature can sometimes be. You see a lovely beach, and then, if you have a trained eye, you see the poison ivy. We have a well known hiking area that has much of that growing in it. We used to go there as children for end of school picnics. Every year, some children would get into the poison ivy despite the warnings. I still remember the case of hives my brother had from it. He should have followed the rules.

  20. It looks beautiful there but what a shame there is poison ivy growing along the shore! I've never seen it growing so wouldn't know what it looks like in the wild.

  21. What a stunning view except that the beach us covered with poison ivy. At least someone wrote a warning sign. I wouldn't have known, I haven't seen poison ivy yet.
