From Port Colborne to Rock Point Provincial Park
Many thanks to MapArt for allowing us to use their maps
Unfortunately we cannot show all the secret paths which we used to explore our area. Please use also "Google Earth". You can download this program for free and it is fun to use.
Otherwise look for street signs when you travel.
As already said for Port Colborne we have prepared a page as part of our tourist guide. We have met so many nice people in this town and whoever we took there from Europe loved it.
Please find your way to the lake and follow the road along the coast.
Unfortunately, you will not see too much of Lake Erie at the beginning because of all the houses which have been built there.
See how wealthy Canadians live.
Pull into side roads, even when you see signs "No Exit". This is part of a sightseeing tour. Occasionally you find a small spot with public access to lake Erie.
Little mermaids on Lake Erie
This friendly group started waving to me after I hat taken some pictures. They were all young ladies!
Drive slowly - otherwise you can easily miss something. A speed limit applies anyhow.
Between Port Colborne and Burnaby I met these ladies
Not only Dunnville, but also in Burnaby you can add a real unforgettable adventure to your visit of Ontario - Sky Diving! Have you ever tried it? Even our pastor did it. You do not jump alone when you are a beginner. You jump as a tandem with an experienced sky diver on an extra large parachute. Even a grandma - over 80 years old - did it.
For an extra fee you will be filmed during your jump.

I mentioned several times that occasionally swimming is banned in Lake Erie because of e-coli bacteria. Many blame the farmers for that. I grew up in Bavaria where we have many clean lakes surrounded by farm, and such problems were never reported. However a state-of-the-art sewage treatment was in place.
Just see all the signs were the owners of the villas protest against such systems.
I believe sometimes a government should govern - it is paid to do that.
House on the lake - not a protester
A well known seafood restaurant
Between Long Beach and Lowbanks
I always drove very slowly to watch the scenery. Everybody who lived close to the road loved that. They greeted me and young women very smiling at me. Now, after I am old and married they do that, why not when I was young?
If you come with trailer, a motor home or a tent you can stay at the "Long Beach Conservation Area". Cottages are not offered.
An old cemetery
There are almost no restaurant with a panoramic view to the lake, also no hotels I always stop at this place for an ice cold drink or an ice cream bar.
Boat rental and snack bar
The "Mohawk Marina" - a nice place for a short break
View at the lake in Lowbanks
A purely green lawn is a status symbol for many Canadians. Daisies, dandelion and other "weed" are eliminated with full chemical power. Now, finally the use of the used pesticides became restricted.
I still so not know whether the land close to the lake is public or not. I would recommend to ask, if you want to sit there or go swimming.
Certainly a nice place for retirement
Proceed to the "Rock Point Provincial Park". We love this place for swimming or just relaxing.
Despite the name you will find also a beautiful sandy beach there.
Just purchase a day pass and enjoy nature.
New - wind power is coming to Ontario
Finally wind power parks are being built along the North shores of Lake Erie. When I was a child I was loving about the adventures and imaginations of Don Quixote. I thought it was hilarious when he attacked wind mills.
The modern variant of these famous hero is not any longer funny. Naturally everything has benefits and draw backs. But fighting against this proven environmental friendly technology which could create well paid jobs in our area is short sighted and selfish.
If I would have magical power I would send all those who fight against it back into the stone age or to Alberta very close where the oil sands are explored.
