2015 SPRING CAMPING TRIP TO SANDBANKS

ANNUAL SPRING CAMPING TRIP TO SANDBANKS PROVINCIAL PARK MAY LONG WEEKEND

201506 Sandbanks 0001This year we headed east to the Sandbanks Provincial Park to check out the sand dunes there and explore the area. We booked 3 campsites for everyone to set up their tent. We had a new screen tent this year which was much more spacious than the old one, and much easier to set up. The weather cooperated most of the time, with only a few brief cloud burst on the Friday evening. We moved to shelter briefly just to return to the campfire for some good cooking and con-versation. The bugs were not to bad either this year.

We explored the sand dunes and a trail inside the park. We also ventured out to the surrounding area to see the Point Petre Lighthouse and shoreline. We took a trip up the mountain to see the Lake at the top of the mountain.

Took time to shoot at an abandoned Texaco Gas station with the old pump. We even found a lovely homemade ice cream shop Slicker’s that had us make a few stops to cool off with the lovely warm weather we had this year. Quite the difference from last year for sure.

On the way home we traveled through some back roads stopping here and there when ever something caught our eye. All and all everyone had a great time.
