Presqu'ile Provincial Park
Just back from a week at Presqu'ile Provincial Park, near Brighton. The park has a fantastic one-way road around the perimeter, with a generous bike lane.
The kids biked from the campground down to the nature centre or the lighthouse every day, and we spent most afternoons enjoying the warm water at the long, sandy beach. My seven-year-old and I went "goggling" on the rocky beach next to the campground and came up with a bucket full of colourful stones.
The staff at Presqu'ile are extremely motivated, and the kids loved the programs. Especially the one where the snakes came out. Both kids were wearing a corn snake around their neck.
Not too much wildlife on this trip, just plenty of garter snakes, and we rescued a couple of salamanders that we found when packing up to leave.
