Found the sun : ) in Picton, Ontario

If the sunshine won't come to us . . . . we will go to the sun : ). My dad lives in Picton (Prince Edward County), Ontario. It has proven itself in the last 15 years as an ideal location for vineyards. They are all doing very well. We visited several wineries and cheese factories. The two go together I guess! Certainly enjoyed the nice weather and pretty outdoor cafes.

Check out that blue sky . . . so nice to see (Ottawa got 11 inches of rain this July ~ hoping for a sunnier August)

This is the entrance to The Grange of Prince Edward. Such a pretty location . . . full of antiques too!

This is my son hiding behind the elaborate mask, LOL.

Many pretty lake views.

The grapes seem to be doing well this season.

Check out this mesh . . . no birds or bugs for these berry bushes.

We had a great few days in Picton. The kids enjoyed the ice cream, chocolate and fudge that we found along the way. They have the tourist thing all figured out !

Picton is sure a lovely place to be at any time of year!
Certainly with the sun it makes it even more of a desirable location to be in.
Enjoy the time off.
