Pinery Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada Sep 14-18, 2016

After visiting Niagara, we continued on through Ontario, Canada.  We camped at Pinery Provincial Park which is located right on Lake Huron.  The park is over 25 square km (10 sq miles), with over 1200 campsites.  

Watching the sunset over Lake Huron

Walking the boardwalk path to the beach

After sunset, we rode our bikes back to the campsite on the Savannah Trail



Time for another kayak ride on the Ausable Channel.  It's located right in the campground.

We saw a bunch of these wild turkeys every morning.


They are a lot of fun to watch.  
Sometimes, they fly up into the trees.  Apparently, they sleep in the trees to avoid predators.


The squirrels in this part of Canada and Niagara Falls area are Black in Color.  Kind of different than what we are used to seeing.

Our campsite had ample space, but was a little awkward tying to figure out which way to park the rig.  Luckily, we had a 30 Amp extension cord, because our power pole was quite a distance from the RV. 

We visited several towns north of the campgrounds, including Grand Bend, Goderich...and our favorite - Bayfield
I had a tough time getting Linda out of the little shops in Bayfield. Thank goodness we got there late and they were closing.  I planned that just right. LOL  


We couldn't visit Canada without trying some Poutine (French Fries smothered in Gravy and Cheese Curds)  and what finer place than McDonalds???  
Linda wouldn't even look at it.
