From Niagara Falls we hired a car, driving north though Toronto, to Prince Edward County. Here we stayed in the pleasant waterside village of Picton, here is the small harbour.
Picton was a good base to explore Prince Edward County from. There are numerous nice bars, cafés and restaurants around Picton. We had a great value cook breakfast in one such café.
Sandbanks Provincial Park at Prince Edward County comprises sand dunes and beaches. First we saw the sand dunes, where this is also a nature trail walk around the dunes area.
Next stop was Outlet Beach, which is the most scenic of the area, and we still had great weather for September.
Aswell as the provincial park, the county is popular for wineyards, locally made cider & beer. Then there is also a good range of freshly grown produce, with numerous farm shops & wineries to visit. So we drive around visiting a few places buying food and drink to enjoy back at the holiday home. Here these apples looked nearly ready for picking.
After Prince Edward County, we continued our trip north heading away from Lake Ontario. We were still right next to the water at our next holiday home, overlooking the St Lawrence River.
Nearby here was the town of Brockville, with an interesting old railway tunnel that is now a walking path. it has an impressive light installation that changes colour as you walk through.
