Our last day in Canada dawned sunny. Our evening flight from Toronto was some time away, and we had around a three hour drive to get to the airport. So what to do?
We met up with a friend who suggested we walked one of the trails in MacGregor Point Provincial Park, near to Port Elgin.
Parking up at the south-western corner, we walked in a clockwise direction. The MacGregor Point Project was established in 1987 by Duck Unlimited to provide a wildfowl conservation area.
The first feature we reached was the observation tower, accessed via a board-walk.
The observation tower gave us a view across the wetlands that we were about to walk around. Returning to the trail, we passed a picnic table, next to one of the many ponds.
As befits a wetland habitat, not all the ground is able to be walked upon. In these locations, there are board-walks.
Around the trail are interpretative boards telling the story of wetlands, identifying the various parts of wetlands and how they interact.
On the west side of the trail, there is a bird hide that was installed in 2012.
As expected in the Canadian Fall, geese where heard and observed.
From the hide, we headed back to the car, were we saw the observation tower.
Our final sight of the wetlands include more Canadian Geese.
Heading away from the water, we returned to the car, and headed back into Port Elgin for lunch. We took around 75 minutes for the walk which was a pleasant way to spend some time prior to the start of the journey home.
