497. Canada Day Weekend!

beach sunset
For Canada Day weekend last week, I finally had the chance to visit one of the places (in Ontario) that I've been wanting to go for a few years already - Point Pelee. I found a photo of the boardwalk and thought it was so cool. I really love marshes and wetlands. Point Pelee is at the southernmost tip of mainland Canada. It was about a 4 hour drive away. We stayed for one night (at a cute B&B). On the first day we went to Wheatley Provincial Park for a campfire and our own fireworks. The second day we went to Point Pelee Pelee National Park for the boardwalk, walking trails and visiting "the tip". On the drive back we stopped at a farm for strawberry picking, stopped at another farm for cherries and cherry pie, stopped at a barn for an antique flea market, before coming back to Toronto. Fun weekend overall! I didn't take a lot of photos but here are some:

There are apparently all types of wildlife here but we only saw a lot of different birds, and dragonflies. I wanted to see a blue heron and a mink but unfortunately didn't.

I really enjoyed walking through this trail but there were sooo many insects and ticks around. I was constantly on the lookout for getting bitten (I get insect bites a lot!). It was a really nice walk though and on one end leads to the beach.

We then took a shuttle to the very tip which to be honest wasn't very impressive to me..
