Prince Edward County trip

Spent a week in Prince Edward County, a gorgeous area located an hour and a half east of Toronto, and is home to Sandbanks Provincial Park, a great beach and dunes, plus it is a lovely vicinity to explore the area which is full of wineries, picturesque country and little towns that boast great restaurants, shops and antiques. We has a cottage rental for one week in which to relax, and enjoy the country.
I got a nice shot of some horses backsides, tails swishing.

The storm clouds make for a dramatic lake and sky photo.

The storm bypassed, and we ventured country roads viewing farm fields on one side, lake shores on the other, in search of a goats cheese farm and Cider house.
This playground contraption, sometimes called The Witch's hat, was bolted so we could't move it. I remember playing on them as a kid in the sixties and seventies. Most of them are long gone, so i was amazed to find one.

Photos taken from a ferry. The area is known as lake-on-the-mountain.

other ferry view.

Quaint town hall.

Prince Edward County boasts 26 wineries. The soil is comparable to many European vineyards, making for some great wines!

Apple Orchard.
View from the cottage/house we stayed at. The area beyond belongs to an Ostrich farm. I kept looking for some, but disappointingly, never did see not a one!

This is Birdhouse City, home to a bunch of condos for the area bird population. There must have been at least 50 or more of them!
Wonder how high the rent is?

This view is of Steve driving us past a giant apple. I wanted to stop for apple pie.

My next blog post will showcase some more highlights of the trip. Stay tuned!
