One of the beautiful things about Pancake Bay is the beach. It’s long and lovely to walk on and watch sunsets. It is a beautiful place to start our return journey home.
My favourite things about camping in the fall are sunny days that warm up the sand. We sit on the beach with our toes in warm sand and have lunch before the afternoon wind picks up.
As much as we love going to new places each time, certain parks are the appropriate distance from each other that we end up stopping there on each trip. The cool thing about that is we explore new parts of the park as well as revisiting trails and places we’ve visited before and often find things we’ve overlooked.
A nice walk along the beach and we found people fishing….so….
Thanks to the new waders I was able to join the folk in Lake Superior and tried to catch some fish…no luck there.
This is one of activities that is wonderful at Pancake Bay, sitting on the beach. Our feet in the sand warmed up by the sun. A light breeze to keep away whatever bugs are still around in the fall.
After a good few days we headed towards Chutes Provincial Park as that would be a moderate drive and if necessary we could make it home after. We’ve been to Chutes before and keep stopping there as it’s a good distance from the other parks and there isn’t a whole lot between.
We had to make reservations once again as the parks were getting full. We spoke to the warden and she said that this was the first weekend where there any openings.
Once again, we hiked and this time a backwards loop on our regular trail.
It’s always sad to be travelling with friends and have to part ways on the way home.
I decided to go fishing again and I caught the guy below. As I was taking the photo it flopped it’s way back into the water and shook off the sand swimming away.
Some alone time hiking.
And sometime it’s just nice to sit in the trailer.
We start our journey home and maybe stop somewhere along the way.
Great photos guys 👍
Thanks Nick, much appreciated. There are still still a couple of posts to happen before we’re all caught up again. Winter blahs were not good for this blog. 🙂
