Living in the Niagara area for about two years, I’ve found lots to keep me busy. From the world-renowned tourist destinations (Niagara Falls, local wineries) to little known but breathtakingly beautiful spots (discovering the older Welland canals, Queenston Heights) I’ve had a great time adventuring! So far though, one of my favourite days was spent discovering the only Great Lake I hadn’t explored yet: Lake Erie ..
I’d been missing the wild shores of Lake Superior and heard so many people talk about beautiful sandy beaches so I decided to go for a drive. The area is lovely but the shoreline was almost all private homes and after one look at the number of trucks parked at Long Point and I almost headed back. Then just to the east, I decided to take a right turn to find a better photo opportunity and stumbled upon Morgan’s Point! The park is surprisingly diverse considering its size – I wandered back and forth from magnificent shoreline with bedrock shoals and white sandy dunes to tall grass meadows and shady green woodlots.
