Postering the provincial parks in Prince Edward County

Five years ago, my wife and I moved our new family to the magical farm & food island of Prince Edward County, jutting out into Lake Ontario.  This place quickly began to feed my work as an illustrator, and led to a growing series of faux travel posters.  This tiny island has 3 parks: North Beach Provincial Park, Lake-on-the-Mountain Provincial Park, and the jewel, Sandbanks Provincial Park.  Two of the three have found their way into

Lakes of Leisure

To arrive in Prince Edward County is to cross the water.  We are an island, after all.  If you’re taking the Loyalist Parkway from the East you’ll pull right up onto the Glenora Ferry and make your way to the County.  Above your head lies the mysterious Lake On the Mountain. Perched atop a large hill and with no discernible source for it’s fresh water, it’s a provincial park and a great spot for a picnic or a paddle (and a pizza).

Lunches at Sandbanks

With eight kids, the only holidays my parents could afford were long days at the beach.  My favourite part was when they’d pull out the hibachi and the seemingly bottomless picnic basket.  Sandbanks Provincial Park is a jewel for Ontario’s beach lovers.  Long sandy beaches with turquoise water, surrounded by campgrounds, nature walks, rivers and the largest baymouth dunes the world.  And you can still barbecue on the beach.
