my daughter enjoying a day at the office with me…

Geez, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I’ve made a post here.  I’ve been slacking.  But with this incredible weather, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the beach, so I haven’t had the time to write!  Maybe everyone else should follow suit 😉

I have the privilege of living about 5 minutes away from the shores of Lake Erie, and all along it’s coast are fantastic beaches.  Some of the most popular locations include Port Dover, Turkey Point, and Long Point, and if you don’t mind crowds, they are definitely places you should be checking out.

Port Dover is a small fishing town turned tourist spot.  With it’s famous lighthouse, sandy beaches, seasonal shops and popular restaurants, it attracts a huge crowd during the warm

months.  I still find it amazing how many people line up to get themselves an HarbourDog.  Personally, I love walking the beach in the evening when the crowds die down and the sun is setting on the liquid horizon.  Listening to the waves come in is such a relaxing sound.

For my money, though, I prefer to seek out the quiet, less travelled parts of the Lake.  The ones where you have to walk a bit further to find that perfect spot.  Maybe jump a few shoreline protection barriers, or wade around a small rock peninsula.  It’s these tranquil places that I love.  The awesome thing about Lake Erie, is that it’s so big that there are a TON of places like this!  I invite anyone from out of the area to come down and enjoy one of the best summer attractions that any place has to offer.  And for all my local readers, is there a favourite spot that you seek out?  Let me know…I’d love to go in search of it 🙂
