After a busy 3 week period in which I was in Ottawa twice for teaching and in which we completed all of the interior painting (except for a few areas that need to wait), we took most of today off and visited the sand dunes of Sandbanks Provincial Park. It was a good break!
The sand dunes are an amazing sight, regardless of the time of year. They are said to be the largest baymouth barrier dune formation in the world. They rise as high as 60 metres (200 feet) from the lake and stretch 8 kilometres along the shore of Lake Ontario, in the western part of Prince Edward County (about 20 minutes from our place).
If you are interesting in seeing an interesting video about the formation of the dunes, you can go to this website.
Here are a few of our favourite scenes from the afternoon.
