Late summer vacation in PEC

 Our summer vacation (in September -- the best time to go on vacation as far as I'm concerned), started with a weekend in Kingston with my two besties. We had some great meals and took the Thousand Island boat tour. Fun!

 Then we headed west and took the Glenora ferry to Prince Edward County (PEC). The Lake in the Mountain is said to be one of the smallest Ontario Provincial Parks around. Maybe, but it has a heck of a view!

 Right next door is the Miller House, where we went for a drink...

 They brew their own Lake of the Mountain beer -- six kinds -- and you get this view!

And a September vacation? Usually great weather and not many people around. Perfect.

 We visited Birdhouse City, with 100 or so birdhouses, many reproductions of famous architecture.

 We visited a the County Cider Co. that had an amazing view.

 They also grew grapes!

 Richard amongst the apples...

And we went to a wine tasting at Sandbanks Winery.

We brought some of what we tasted home.

The piece de la resistance was Sandbanks Provincial Park.

It was like being at the ocean.

And the only other creatures we were competing with were the one-legged sleeping geese.

It looks fabulous! I went to Prince Edward County earlier this summer and really enjoyed it, but it looks like you went at the best time - fewer tourists. I especially love the picture of you on the beach at Sandbanks. Lovely!
