Pinery, July 12-14 2013

Hazy, Hot & Humid...........
It was the hottest week-end we have had so far this year. I've never seen so many people at the beach before and parking was at a premium all week-end. We did enjoy the sun and the water was warm. We drove through the loop of the park and enjoyed the sights along the way. My shoulder is almost back to normal but I don't want to aggravate it so we didn't do any biking or canoeing. We spent time at our campsite relaxing and enjoyed time down by the channel watching the herons and the dragonflies. We had a great steak dinner on Saturday, watched the sunset at the beach and enjoyed a campfire. Sunday morning I walked through our campsite area and part of a trail to see what sights I could take in. We always enjoy our time at the Pinery as there is so much to see and do. Next week we are off to Point Farms and the great bakery in Goderich.
