Canada - Prince Edward County, Ontario

storm 20 °C

On our way to through Ontario we drove along the St Lawrence River and we could see New York State over the water! We were also able to check out the Thousand Islands National Park. A stunning place where the islands are actually the worn-down tops of ancient mountains. Our final camping spot was at Qunite's Isle Campground in Prince Edward county - part of Ontario's lake district. The district is where many of the locals go 'cottaging' on the weekends from Toronto. It's a beautiful and peaceful place to get away from it all right by Lake Ontario which is known for it's wineries, scenery and beaches.

We had a picnic dinner on the edge of Lake Ontario. We were camping for the last time on our trip, but as a storm approached we could see a lightening show threatening in the distance, so we reluctantly opted to sleep in the Van... we made it through the night without being blown into Lake Ontario. The area is an up and coming wine region which we checked out on the way out and learned that they have to bury the vineyards completely in winter because of the cold! We then set of for our final destination...Toronto!
