A Week Ago in Prince Edward County
This was my first time in Prince Edward County. The beach at Sandbanks Provincial Park rivals Caribbean beaches - the sand is soft, the beach is wide and the water is blue (well not so warm as a Caribbean beach).
The fall colours were at their height. Prince Edward County is a large peninsula. On our way home we took the ferry across this stretch of water. The ferry is part of the provincial road system, so there is no charge.
The area is dotted with vineyards as well as apple orchards where cider is produced. Once can go from one to the next tasting their wares.
There is beauty in the decay that autumn brings. The milkweed seeds are ready to travel on the wind, finding a place to germinate when spring comes.
I'll have to get back to this area. There are so many photo opportunities.
