Day Trip to Prince Edward County

My friend Crystal and I had a day set aside for the beach. She and her kids never been to Sandbanks Provincial Park and it was another excuse to get to Prince Edward County. There was a downside we originally wanted to find a place to crash overnight in the county, yeah, good luck with that a few days before the long holiday weekend. Our trip to the beach became a day trip, the kids loved it.

Now the grown ups weren't neglected, my friend Crystal and I hit Sandbanks Winery and later Country Road Beer Company which is literally on a back country road in the middle of nowhere. We got there from route one by way of Benway Road, a one lane backcountry dirt road most likely cut in the late 18th century through fallowed farm fields, a woodlot and a vineyard. Now on the way out dinner was at George's Fish and Chips on Loyalist Parkway just south of Carrying Place. I had the best chocolate milkshake since I was like 12 or 13 years old and the fish chips are first rate.

Next time I have to find a place to stay overnight.

Now the second part of this trip inspired an upcoming article I wrote for the Film Shooters Collective on the rationale that a Nikkormat FTn and Nikkor H 50 f2 lens is your perfect vacation camera. When it's published I will put a link right here.

Update: The Article has been published on the Film Shooters Collective and you can link to hit by clicking on Nikkormat FTN.
