My first visit to Belleville was not planned.
Many Years ago I was with my used Kawasaki Katana on a trip to Quebec when it caught fire shortly before Belleville because of a short circuit.
It was loaded on truck and brought to a dealership. I stayed in a motel and rented a car.
It took a few days to get all the required spare parts and I explored Belleville. At this time no digital cameras were on the market and I did not take any pictures.
I enjoyed everything what I saw in Belleville and especially the friendliness of the local people impressed me so much that I came back a few times later with my wife Elizabeth.
We visited together all the places which I had seen before.
We drove several times over the Bay Bridge to the Prince Edward County.
We went to the sandy beach where I had enjoyed swimming but the water was still too cold for Elizabeth and many dead fish scarred us also away. Why did so many die at the same time? I never could find out.

Please us the installed link below to a video which shows you many details about Prince Edward County. Almost all of our own pictures got lost when my computer was stolen. Many thanks to Wikipedia for the help.
Belleville is really a place where you can stay without having a broken down vehicle.
There is so much to do and to see when you include all the surroundings. During my first visit I enjoyed one of the best steaks I had so far. I went with Elizabeth back to the same place to treat her and myself. However, they must have changed the chef and I was disappointed. Similar things happened also in Austria and in Germany to me.
We stayed one in an old hotel which was used many years ago by certain ladies to offer their services. It was really old, but we loved it there. The brunch was excellent.
When we wanted to stay there again, we learned that it was burned down.
Ask for actual events when you are there. We cannot keep our little web site up to date.

Below a picture of the bridge over the Bay of Quinte to Prince Edward Island. Also the Moira River ends here.
Don't get confused by the map - it is really an island. A small canal separates it from the mainland on the on the west.

When we visited relatives from Elizabeth we did excessive walking in Belleville. This is one of the view pictures which were not lost.
We went also again to Prince Edward County and did not find any dead fish this time. The provincial parks were as usual attractions for us and we loved the little villages.
Watch the video below to get an impression of what to expect. I think it is a great place to spend holidays when the sun is shining which she normally does in Ontario during summer.
Elizabeth was excited what she saw - ateliers of artists and crafts people, boutiques. I had to wait all the time for her. She is a real (window) shopping monster!
We also did some bird watching which is very popular here same as fishing, biking and other outdoor activities.
It was interesting to learn during the prohibition local produced alcohol was smuggled into the USA. This made some people very rich.
Today any people who live close to the US border buy their booth over there because it is much cheaper.
