Sep 6, 2019 - Prince Edward County

September 5 Moved on over to Prince Edward County, Ontario not to be confused with the Province of Prince Edward. The temps were in the high 70’s, traffic was light so the 150 kilometers was an easy drive. We found the office and got a camp site; all the wooded sites were full. This Provincial Park has 5 campgrounds with 900 camp sites we were site 840. With lows in the mid 50’s sun is good no shade..

Jul 31, 2013 - Grafton (ON) to Adolphustown (ON)

I awoke at 5:00 am and left the campground in Grafton at 6:30 am. The route had us continuing along the Waterfront Trail on the North shore of Lake Ontario, going through Lakeport, Colborne, Salem, Rednersville and Picton, followed by a short ferry ride to Adolphustown. During the early part of the ride, we were in Northumberland County and it was refreshing to see how the County caters to cyclists. There were "Welcome Cyclists" signs along the side of the road which had wide paved cycling lanes that were free of debris, drivers gave us a...

Mar 21, 2013 - More family photos from Ontario

Hi Friends! We are home again and I have a few photos of the grandkids to post.... Loved seeing them but the two weeks was just too short. The wedding was wonderful and we really enjoyed seeing everyone..... I know we have been to ld that we can change this by moving back to Ontario. However, we love our lifestyle and we would not be able to live in our RV year round in the cold weather of the Ontario winters. In order to live back there, we would both have to look at going back to work full time to be able to afford a home. At this time in...

May 22, 2012 - Picton, Ontario

We are now en route to the east coast. Our first stop is Picton to see the Sandbanks and we stayed a couple of nights in Woodland Prov. Park. We headed for the old Picton Army Base where we left the coach over night outside Lance's hanger. We had a great evening swapping old stories from the past and enjoyed creating new ones. Thank you Lance and Cathy for hospitality

Oct 8, 2008 - A walk around Picton

Hi! Angela drove us into town on her way to work at her office at Chestnut Park Real Estate. While she worked we walked around downtown Picton. This town still consists of one main street where you can walk from one end to the other in less than half an hour. We dropped into the local discount store, Giant Tiger, to see what’s new. Checked out the bookstore and stopped for coffee and desert at one of the trendy new cafes. This one was called Miss Lily’s Café – actually a very nice place and in a good location since you can walk from the...

Aug 29, 2006 - Sandbanks Provincial Park, ON

Left Montreal and travelled south-west into Ontario, back to English-speaking Canada. Decided not to do the long haul to Toronto in one day so after some advice from a tourist office we headed to Sandbanks Provincial Park in Prince Edward County, an up and coming wine region. Camped in the park on the shore of Lake Ontario, our first encounter with the Great Lakes. On the Wednesday we had the perfect lazy day. Checked out one of the wineries in the morning (I never knew the Canadians produced wine but a suprisingly quaffable rose), bought...
