The easing of restrictions in our area during the covid pandemic has meant we have been able to venture a short way from home, but still within easy driving distance. So over the last couple of weeks in June we visited our local favourites.
On a lovely clear day in June we visited one of our favourite places about 25 minutes from home. At Wellington Beach we walk the boardwalk, enjoy the smells and sounds of the water, and of course take lots of photos.
We explored a new beach area for us at the Cobourg West Beach.
A large gathering of Canada Geese enjoyed the water in a quiet spot at one end of the beach.
A visit to the Ecology Garden is always a must for us. You can walk the shady paths and enjoy all sorts of natural gardens, interesting garden art, and talk with friendly volunteers.
I just love the creative way an old tree has been transformed into a giant rabbit. We didn’t see any residents at the martin houses on this visit. Maybe next time.
The places we love to go to for daycations aren’t those ones that are packed with tourists. We love quiet areas where we can listen to the water, walk a stony beach, and watch the wildlife and enjoy Nature.
Stay local, enjoy local, you just might be surprised at what you discover. Support the local economy, which is really important during these times.
