Leaving early for our road trip
This is the beginning of a new life basically; getting out of the old routine, starting fresh again, making new friends, trying something new everyday, discovering new places, etc. I cannot wait to see how this turns out. Our first stop is Ottawa, Ontario, but since it takes a while to get there, we decided to stop at Sandbanks in Prince Edward County, Ontario.
Sandbanks Beach Sign
The drive from Mississauga, ON took us only about 2 1/2 hours. We left early, to avoid traffic and to get a good spot on the beach. We've picked this stop, instead of the usual Kingston, ON stop that most people take, since we wanted to see the difference beach-wise in different places. Also, we weren't planning on staying here long, only for the day, so we figured we could stay for a little picnic then continue to our first stop, so we can make it in time for Canada Day tomorrow.
View of Sandbanks Beach
The beach was quite empty when we got there. It's not exactly a real beach like the ones found around the world, but close enough. It was great to be able play some beach volleyball, swim and just relax before going on our long road trip and really hitting the road. Our road trip is only going to end in New Jersey, where we'll then switch to planes.
The Mustang Drive-In in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada
Here in Prince Edward County, we went to explore around after our picnic at around 3 pm, and we found that there's a drive-in, called Mustang Drive-In. Since we've never been to one, we really wanted to stay, but the movie that was play didn't start until 7:45 pm, so we couldn't, since we have got a 3 1/2 hour drive to Ottawa. That's the thing about traveling I guess, even if you want to do everything, you can't really and there's only so much time.
But, on the bright side, there's always another chance to do something new somewhere else.
