Tuesday Tidbits #192 Canada🇨🇦🍁🇨🇦🍁🇨🇦

Welcome Friends!

We went on an adventure!

A few hours north of us from here in Pennsylvania… is Canada.

I always wanted to stand in Canada directly across from Erie, Pennsylvania. I got my wish.

Long Point Ontario

Where the dark clouds meet Lake Erie is Erie, Pennsylvania.

To get the view above… we went to Long Point which is a peninsula near Port Rowan in Ontario Canada on Lake Erie. Many have swam across Lake Erie starting from this point to just north of the city of Erie in Pennsylvania. It’s 23.8 miles. Amazing!

Many houses line the Lake here. Their back yards are the beach.
Quite a large log washed up onto the beach.
We were prepared with an umbrella as the weather was having a hard time deciding if it wanted to rain. We did not find any treasure here. There were no rocks or beach glass anywhere to be found.

We did chat with the woman who owns this house and property. She found treasures of a different kind.

Do you see the shovels she has found along the beach?
Here’s a closer look.
This tree was in her backyard!

As we left the peninsula we saw this Marsh that had plenty of egrets and Canadian geese but not one in my picture!

As we headed towards London, Ontario we were amazed by the many fields of pumpkins and squash. It seemed like miles upon miles of orange, green and yellow!

Quite a large pumpkin patch!
We never saw so many in an area. This was just one area among many! And they look like they are ready to be harvested.
This was a decorative feature at the pumpkin field. The truck seems to be hauling a large gourd of some sort! Or is it a boulder?

Grand Bend Beach

Lake Huron Ontario

The next day we headed to Grand Beach. Sweet Man was here 30 years ago and wanted to share this place with me.

The entrance to the beach area.

The flowers added that extra color that I love.
Sweet Man looking for treasure.

As we headed back to the car… I noticed this area. It reminded me of spots in Alaska or Maine.

This was part of Grand Bend but it took me back to our visits to Alaska or Maine.

Thedford Ontario

We enjoy traveling the back roads when visiting an area. We had a destination in mind but found beauty along the way. That’s what’s so nice when taking a road trip. You just never know what you are going to come upon! And it makes every turn so exciting!

Their Soybeans were showing off their Autumn Gold.
A surprise with a field of soybeans.
An apple orchard!
Of course we had to stop at the Apple Orchard’s Store. The scent of apple cider was heavenly!
We even found an outdoor market!

Port Franks

An area for Sand Dunes by Lake Huron.

This was a restoration area so no climbing of the dunes was permitted.

Arkona Ontario

Another place Sweet Man wanted me to see was a lovely place called Rock Glen Falls. He camped here 30 years ago.

It took us a while to find the Falls but after we crossed this bridge we found them!
We had this little guy tag along with us.

After climbing down the stairs we came to the Falls. I was so happy there was water flowing as it had not rained in quite a while. Oh how pretty!

It was a lovely spot. It flooded Sweet Man’s head with so many precious memories!

A lovely spot.

We climbed back up the steps and went to the top of the falls.

A place to enjoy the quiet.
