Saturday we spent exploring the park. We drove to the turtle crossing area where there was a mother Heron and her three young so we watched them for awhile before heading to the beach for a stroll along the waters edge. In the afternoon we went for a long bike ride and enjoyed an ice cream before heading back to camp. We enjoyed a wonderful steak dinner with all the trimmings before going for another drive through the park. About 10:30 in the evening we heard people yelling, swearing and fighting and not long after that there were four OPP cruisers came flying past our site with just a spot light on. Then an ambulance arrived. Shortly afterwards another OPP and two more park vehicles. Things finally quieted down and by 1am everyone had moved out of our area and it was quiet. It was a late night as I am sure it was for lots of people. We didn't hear what happened and we were not about to go and check it out that night since it sounded bad enough.
Sunday we did a bit of exploring had a great brunch. We went and parked at the visitors center once we left our site. There were lots of Hummingbirds at the feeders. They must be bulking up for there trip south. I had never seen so many in one place. It was great to listen to them as they were doing so much chattering and chasing each other around. Before heading home we enjoyed a bite to eat at the park restaurant. We had never eaten there and we enjoyed it. It was a fun weekend with Drew and we look forward to having him along with us again sometime.
