SkyWatch Friday ~ More Sand, Sun and Blue Skies!

As any of you know who follow my blog, I love to walk and one of my favourite walks is at Sandbanks Provincial Park in Prince Edward County, Ontario when I am in the east.
These stunning dunes and sandbanks are unique in the world because of their age and geology
and their incredible fine white sands.
The weather in Ontario this winter has been sunny and dry of snow and the spring is proving to be just as baron of percipitation.
With no snow cover and lots of high winds this winter and spring the dunes are shifting and moving!
A friend and I walked his dogs for hours on this warm, blue sky day in the dunes.
During the afternoon puffy clouds found their way onto the landscape.
And I finally stayed on the beach long enough to get a sunset of sorts over the lake
and over the marsh which is incredibly dry.  During our six and half hours on the dunes, beaches and marsh of this beautiful Provincial Park we saw no one!
For more beautiful skies from around the world why not join us at
 and remember photos can be enlarged for more detail by clicking on them. 
 Have a great weekend all!

Such a pleasant surprise to see no one visiting these amazing sand dunes. Hope the wind didn't sand blast you while shifting around.

It is a gift to have it all to yourselves. Usually you have to share these wonderful places with many others.

Carolyn: Wonderful photos at the beach. That walk along the sloping sand looked like a hard way to go.

Which part of Ontario are you in? In th 70s, I was in Windsor.

Nice to see white sand. Do you climb the dunes?
