... Marsh Boardwalk, I continued to drive along the road and noticed numerous beach signs along the way. Joanne and I had decided not to bring our swim suits for this trip and after seeing all the signs, we were feeling a bit disappointed we had not brought them. (We later found out the water was not safe to swim in because of the toxin levels in them during this time of the year).
Anyways, I noticed a sign that said the Dunes so decided to stop and see what they ...
... were lots and lots of bulrushes.
At the top of the boardwalk, the scenery did improve with views of more vegetation and of the pond.

... After we paid at the gate, we entered into Point Pelee National Park.
The road was surrounded by trees and it was quite peaceful and quiet - with not many tourists entering the park with us. We later found out why!!! (but I will save that for later).
I drove fairly slow enjoying all the beauty around us (plus the speed limit was only 50 km/h).

As we drove from one town to another, we saw many vegetable/fruit stands along the roads. From tomatoes, cukes, peaches, melons, ...
... with us during this trip. We would like to explore Point Pelee Park and Pelee Island. So far the weather is calling for clouds and some rain tomorrow and lots of sun on Thursday. I'm hoping the weather will turn out being nice for both days... (fingers crossed... :). After all, Leamington lays claim to being the "Sun Parlour" of Canada due to its southern location.
