Aidan has been working hard on learning about nature, colours, spelling and math so, I decided after looking at the "Explore The Bruce" Adventure http://www.explorethebruce.com/ that we would complete the adventure. Before we started our adventure, we stopped by The Sweet Shop first http://www.sweetshop.ca/ where Aidan bought a gigantic lollipop and I grabbed a little bag of mint chocolate Mmmmm.
Aidan loves going for hikes and was very eager to venture into the first destination "The Grotto" at the Bruce Peninsula National Park near Tobermory, Ontario.
There are 12 destinations plus 1 bonus location. We completed the first two yesterday. Enjoy our pictures of our fun afternoon enjoying some of the neat locations hidden throughout Bruce County, Ontario.
Passport Stop #1
The Grotto – Bruce Peninsula National Park (D) 1-2 hour hike
GPS: 81°31'28"W 45°13'33"N
There is a day-use fee ($11.70 is what we paid for the day). It’s an easy 45 min walk out to the Georgian Bay shoreline from the Head of Trails.
The clue is located at the Head of Trails.
We decided to take the "Georgian Bay" trail because it was the easiest and most direct route to "The Grotto". We really had no idea what we would be seeing when we got there, but once we arrived and found our destination and stamp; Wow! It was truly an amazing site! I am so glad that we decided to do this adventure. What a neat part of Bruce County!
I would strongly recommend visiting The Grotto. What an amazing site!
Passport Stop #2
St. Margaret’s Chapel – Cape Chin
GPS: 81°18'59"W 45°3'37"N
Built to the truest form in the Anglican tradition this quaint church rose from the stone of the Niagara Escarpment. Each summer it is visited by hundreds of people from around the world. Remember to sign the guest book before you leave.
The box is located by the church.
This site was closed when we arrived, but it was still a neat little spot that we have never seen before.
We decided to end our adventure for the day at this point, because it was almost 7 pm. We had a great afternoon away and I was able to continue talking to Aidan about trees, nature, animals and being aware of his surroundings. We are looking forward to continuing our adventure another day, but it is time to get back to physical school work.
