Life is a Beach

Project 365 - Day 235

Just love this shot from today... sums it all up I think.

Going to keep it brief as I am totally zonked and want to sleep. We have been travelling several hours in the car today, makes for a long day. We checked out of our first hotel this morning and headed back to Mom's so we could pack up the van for the next leg of our trip.

We finally got on the road around 11ish this morning. We crossed the bridge into Canada to head to Point Pelee. Mom and Ken had been telling me about Point Pelee for quite awhile, and we decided to add it on to our trip.

Took about 2 hours to get there, and the weather had warmed up and was really sunny. We started off in the wetlands area with the huge boardwalk through the reeds and lily pads.

A quick bite of lunch was in order... Ariel was excited about her hot dog!

Then we drove to the nature station to wait for the shuttle that would take us to the actual point where the beach was. While we waited Ariel played with the various toys, including a dress up station...

...Uncle Dan got in on it too

...and a puppet theater which Xander helped Ariel with, haha.

The shuttle came and we were told the flies were biting today, so to keep moving. We soon found out how true that was, ouch! We got dropped off and made our way down the path and pasted the 42nd parallel point. Its wacky to think we were as far south as Rome and Barcelona.

When we arrived at the beach I was blown away by the beauty of it all. Just simply stunning!

Ariel and Grammy made their way to the point and played in the water.

Me and my sweetie!

It was tricky but we got an ok family shot, Xander was getting wormy and Ariel was starting to notice the bugs at this point.

The ride back on the shuttle Ariel was in tears from the bugs landing on her and biting, me too, it was gross! However, it was really worth seeing and I can live from the bugs. Once back in the van, that is where we stayed the remainder of the day, long into the evening. It took a long time to drive up and now we are back in the USA in the State of New York. Tomorrow we will check out Niagara Falls, so better get some sleep! Good night!
