Saturday October 17, 2009-Out and About

It was a bit warmer this morning at 4C (40F) than it has been and the wind wasn't too bad so I took my trail to the beach, walked some on the beach, through the park models, through the woodsy area and came home via the little hill that overlooks the park models near the beach.

Path to the beach (actually the path takes you to some park models so it's still a ways from the beach)

Geese at the beach

Ripples at the sand bar

Swampy area in the woods

Another path that takes you toward the beach

But I turned left and went up the hill on my way back to the RV



I spent most of the morning on the computer and after lunch Gordon and I were ready to get out. Cabin fever was setting in.

So we drove to Centennial Park, a little park in Port Colborne. From there we were able to see the Point Abino Lighthouse.

We were on our way to Morgan's Point Conservation Area but Gordon wanted to take Lakeshore Drive. Just as we arrived at the lift bridge, it started to go up. A ship was coming down the Welland Canal so Gordon parked the truck and we took off to take some photos of the ship. It was a ship from Quebec carrying iron ore pellets.

From there we continued along Lakeshore Drive and arrived at Morgan's Point where we took a couple of trails that take you to the beach.

On our way home we fueled up at 90.9/litre then when we arrived at Sherkston Shores we signed up for another night here. Right now it looks like we'll be crossing the border on Tuesday and heading for Columbus, OH.
