Winter has arrived at the Sandbanks Provincial Park


Entrance to Sandbanks Provincial Park

Today is Thursday November 20, 2014. We needed to head into Picton today and on the way home we decided to take a drive through the Sandbanks Provincial Park. The weather is -2 today, but with that wind chill it sure felt a lot colder.

The winds were fiercely blowing around and actually made it difficult to take a couple of the pictures as it kept trying to blow me off my feet and my camera phone out of my hands. I did manage though and thought I would share a couple with you. Surprisingly, at some points the sun was shining brightly. I was glad to be able to dash back into my warm car after taking the photos though.  The Sandbanks is so pretty no matter what time of year you go for a visit. If it was warmer weather,  with all the waves today there would have been a slew of people out sail boarding. As it was it was the ducks and the gulls that were surfing over the white topped waves.

We are very lucky to live where we do in Carrying Place, as  it is only about a 40 minute drive to the Sandbanks and the drive along Highway 33 (Loyalist Parkway) is always beautiful in itself. If you are staying at a  Belleville and Trenton Home Rentals make sure you come and have a look at the park during your stay. In the meantime, keep warm! I’m writing you this post as I’m at home again sitting near the wood stove and enjoying the warmth! But the images and sounds  of the many water birds above the waves in the Bay swirl in my memory.
