A beautiful afternoon at Point Pelee National Park



We spent a lovely afternoon at Point Pelee National Park yesterday. The weather was perfect, sunny, not windy, and about 14 degrees Celsius. The kids took part in a short scavenger hunt put on by the park rangers. They had to find the clues and answer questions by reading the information page inside the clue boxes. Each box led them to the next clue as well. They had a lot of fun finding those!


We took a foot path trail to the Tip. The "Tip" is the most mainland southern point in Canada.





We crossed the 42nd parallel north to get to the Tip. This particular circle of latitude also passes the border of California and Oregon, the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea, Spain, the Black Sea, and the Caspian Sea. You can see a full list here.
