Doing nothing at Sandbanks

With miles of fine sand and lots of space for everyone (especially on a weekday), Sandbanks Provincial Park is a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon doing nothing other than people watching, staring at the expansive nothingness of the lake, or dozing off, to the sound of gently lapping waves.  I don't need to say anything here either, just show you the evidence...

Day's end

Canoeing on the Black River

We took a short break in Prince Edward County this week staying at a lovely B&B on the mouth of the Black River.  Colleen Cottage, apart from having a gracious hostess who can cook and spacious rooms and grounds, has the advantage of being by the waterfront.  We were comfortable canoeing on the slow moving river and I was particularly thrilled by all the photo ops in spite of the conscious decision not to bring my DSLR with me in the canoe.  But between my Elph and my Blackberry, it all worked out.
