What to do on Cold Winter Days – Massassauga Point

View of the Bay and way out in the distance you can barely see little dots which are ice fishing huts

This week has been pretty cold here in Ontario. But we had decided last fall that we were going to try to get out at least twice a week and go somewhere to hike and do our photography, other than walk around our block. We are still under lockdown in Ontario so we stay in our area. Over the past two days we have gone to Massassauga Point Conservation Area, Presquile Provincial Park and Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area. I will do a separate post on the last two places.

We are truly fortunate to have so many Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas close to us.

On our way to Massassauga Point we passed this sign by the side of the road. I have never heard this expression before and didn’t know quite what to make of it. Some of my friends don’t like and some find it funny. It’s certainly unique! Now if you aren’t sure, because I wasn’t, they are referring to eggs, who knew?

I have no words…

Anyways on to our destination…

Massassauga Point Conservation Area is about 60 acres set on the Bay of Quinte. There are a few trails you can take and a spot for having a picnic. The parking lot is close to the water and we could see one lone ice hut just off the shore. Some portions of the trails follow the shoreline, which is really nice and some go through the forest or past an old quarry.

Into the forest
You never know what you’ll find in the bush
I wonder where the other half is !

So one day of winter adventures, tomorrow off to Presquile Provincial Park and Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area. I think we are supposed to get a lot more colder weather coming next week but so far, hardly any snow. Is that good or bad? I say not so bad but I know skiers would like more!

Stay safe.
