A while back, I believe it was July, My sister and me took a day trip to Pinery/ Grand bend, two hour drive for us. For me with my anxiety I was not sure how the day would un-fold. As a child we use to go their and it is beautiful, The water looks like Cuba water, so clear. It is on lake Huron, it is the best out of the great lakes, because the poullution is minimal.
After a long drive and getting lost in the park we finally found a trail to hike, The first trail was the shortest maybe 45 min hike tops. The best part is all the trails go out to a look out point and as with most provincial trails, you get to learn a bit about it at the end at the look out. Pinery is known for deer and other wildlife and a great spot to bird watch. after the trail we got some food then headed to the beach. the water was very icy cold but the water as clear as could be, no rocks or anything but sand in the water. once we adjusted to the cold water we went very far out. most fun I have had in a while and a good girls trip for sure. we did some yoga and gymnastics on the beach then left to do something else. Back at the main area we decided to go canoeing on the Ausable River. went for about an hour then we headed back to the docks. Once back, Teanna and I grabbed some snacks and then wanted to do more trails, we are big for hiking. We managed to get 2 hour long trails done and all leading out to the Ausable Channel. The sun was setting and was time to head home a bitter sweet end to the day. I saw how beautiful the sunset was so se stopped and ran up the sand dunes, very hard by the way. I needed to get pictured of the beautiful sunset.10 pm now and a two and a bit drive we headed out.
For me I was very sad to leave, I love adventure and going back to an old child hood destination; but due to my health I struggle greatly with it. I don’t get the same chances to go out and do things like that, I have more to think of and plan then most do. We are thinking of moving up that way now to live their year round, I hope it is something we do. Truly is a beautiful spot and I hope everyone gets a chance to visit their.
*Trails to hike are, The bittersweet Trail, Hickory Trail, Heritage Trail, and Riverside Trail.
My youtube channel Kat Dorsey have the vlog from that day cheers!
