This is the face of someone who is about to be vastly disappointed.
I've written about my favorite island drive before. Each year I've visited since, I've attempted to return to Thunder Cove. And every year, it gets bumped to "next time" for one reason or another. My brother's visit was the perfect excuse to put it back on the agenda. But we were going to make one vital change - this time, I was going to make sure that we arrived at low tide, so that we could explore the rock formations that appear in, like, 90% of Pinterest-worthy pictures of PEI. The beach is a little less dramatic these days, as several of the former arches and other sandstone structures have crumbled into the sea, but still - I wanted to see it with my own eyes.
