So last Sunday we headed out to Prince Edward County, it was a beautiful day and we wanted to leave early to get the sunrise. But we were running late so we just moseyed down the road to Bain Park in Trenton for a short time. I wanted to try to capture some photos of the sunrise and to drive to another location would have meant missing it.
After that we headed to North Beach Provincial Park for a walk along Lake Ontario. The park was closed so we parked outside the gate and walked in. We were the only ones there, probably because it was so early!
We walked for quite a while along the beach and we didn’t even see a bird. It was very quiet.
We stopped in Wellington, at Rotary Beach, and sat by the bay drinking our coffee. Then we walked around and took photos of the ducks, Canada geese and Swans. There were so many birds in the water and more kept flying in.
This one duck was quite busy, most of the waterfowl just floated around but this guy was pretty energetic.
They have a lighthouse which is on the point separating Lake Ontario from Wellington Bay.
The photo below I took while standing in front of the Lighthouse and looking back towards Wellington Bay. Clint and I like to canoe in Wellington Bay in the summer, not so much in Lake Ontario!
After that we headed to Long Point . We stopped at this rock face on the way there, it was covered by ice, kind of cool.

The road was gated off to get to this Lighthouse so I took this from the opposite shore where we stopped for a bit.
On the way home we stopped so I could get a quick shot of The Bluffs at Little Bluffs Conservation Area. This is a 20 metre high limestone bluff overlooking Prince Edward Bay. This Conservation Area is still closed, it has been closed for the last few months.
So that was our day, lots of being outdoors and great spots to visit.
Stay safe and take care.
