Due to the cancellation of other plans yesterday, Michael and I found ourselves at Timmy's, coffee in hand, the car all gassed up and no place to go! So, with the sun shining brightly, beach blanket in the trunk of the car and sunglasses firmly planted on noses we, like any other Canadian couple with nothing to do, headed for the beach! Yahoo!
First we toured Pt. Burwell, famous for its wind farm and Lighthouse Restaurant (um...not so much), not to mention white, sandy beaches as far as the eye can see:
|Dabbling my boot-clad toes in Lake Erie - refreshing!!|
|Did I mention the ice floes??|
Yes...well...on the bright side they're not in the water anymore!
|Beached ice floe|
|New and old technology: wind turbine|
and abandoned tobacco kilns
|Michael chowing down on his toasted chicken sandwich|
and homemade fries at the "quaint"
|Travelling east along the Lake Erie coastline we stopped to snap|
some photos of the wind turbines and tobacco kilns only to
happen across this gorgeous view.
You can almost convince yourself it's summer!
|Final destination: Long Point, ON|
Looking a bit like the surface of the moon!
Here we are in Long Point; a gorgeous "point" of land extending
far into Lake Erie. Here all of the ice was still in the lake.
|No dipping my toes in here!|
|The day's end...but we'll be back!|
