We have been to so many beaches in the last few years that it seems like just yesterday I was at (yet) another beach. It was a few weeks back when we started our long weekend by spending the Friday evening at the gorgeous Sauble Beach in Ontario. It’s a 2-hour drive from our place and we stayed close to the location to get a head-start for the activities we had planned for on Saturday.
At a length of 11 kilometers, Sauble Beach is the second longest freshwater beach in the world (after Wasaga beach, that I wrote about earlier). As the community of Sauble beach is located on the West, the pristine shores of Lake Huron provide for some spectacular Sunsets. Our experience was no less!
Being a working day for me on Friday, we reached the beach around 7.30pm. Since the Sunset was supposed to be around 9, we were there at the perfect time to witness the change of colors.The best part about this beach is that you can drive right up to the water (see the car on right in above shot). Moreover, that parking is free! If the parking is full, you can park on the road as well (that is paid, but reasonable). I must also add that the beach is quite clean and, luckily, there were very few people around when we visited.I don’t swim, but that never deters me from just being in the water and listening to the sound of waves. There were a few kids and a surfer further into the lake, enjoying their heart out 😀We spent a couple of hours (even had our dinner in the car while looking at the lake from a few feet). It must have been around 9pm when the waves increased, so we had to back-up the vehicle a bit.After a long time, I witnessed a perfect Sunset. Also, this is one place Saru didn’t want to leave…so she didn’t have to drag me off either 🙂
