Petrie Island in the Fall

by Lara

Way back when it was warm (doesn't that feel so long ago?) Misty told us about Petrie Island and what a great place it was for kids. I have to be honest and say that before her post I thought Petrie Island was just a beach.  And beaches aren't particularly my thing...

It took me awhile to get there, but we headed over there last week and not only is it a lot of fun, but the Fall colours blew me away!

If you're looking for a spot over the next few weeks to enjoy the Fall colours but you don't want to head up into Gatineau, you can definitely find some here.  And while you're there the kids can balance on logs, look for turtles or other wildlife, walk into the wilderness, play on play structures or run around on the huge beach.

It was a great outing on a Fall afternoon - and if I do say so myself, makes a great backdrop for some fabulous photos!

I highly recommend you check it out!
