[PHOTO] Potato fields stretching from Point Prim Road down to Long Creek, PEI

This vista, of fields dense with white potato blossoms flowing south to the blue Long Creek and the Northumberland Strait beyond, past farms and isolated houses and Camp Buchan, struck me when I saw it from the car. Happily, my parents were more than willing to stop to let me photograph this.

The tidal outlet of Long Creek located east of Camp Buchan and the dirt road that connects the Scout camp are lovely to photograph.

[PHOTO] Fourteen photos of the woods and sea around Camp Buchan, Belfast, PEI

The woods and sea around Camp Buchan are favourite places of mine to explore, despite the clouds of mosquitoes coming from the adjacent marshes.

[PHOTO] Low tide at Camp Buchan, Belfast, Prince Edward Island (1)

I’ve long been involved in Prince Edward Island‘s Scouting movement, as a Scout in my own right and as the son of a scoutmaster. On my trip last summer to Prince Edward Island, I joined my parents in visiting Camp Buchan, Prince Edward Island’s only scout camp.

Located on the Island shore of the Northumberland Strait roughly a half-hour’s drive southeast of Charlottetown, Camp Buchan is a beautiful place. This August day I was particularly lucky, since it was low tide. So much more was revealed.
