Sunday Morning

Prince Edward Island

Necee Regis for the Boston Globe

Black-throated green warblers, red-winged blackbirds, and downy woodpeckers are a few of the birds you might spot on a Sunday morning in Greenwich, a National Park of Canada on the north coast of Prince Edward Island. It’s a leisurely 45-minute hike from the parking lot to the beach, through three distinct and stunning landscapes.

Stroll a wide dirt road past open fields of wildflowers with views across St. Peters Bay before reaching a narrow, well-marked trail that winds through a forest of white spruce, red maple, and balsam fir. Eventually, you’ll emerge at Bowley Pond, a shallow expanse of freshwater with grasses, cattails, and a floating boardwalk that zigzags from the forest to parabolic dunes and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Trails are open from late spring until late fall.  http://www.pc.gc
