As a child my family rented cottages along the shores of Lake Huron for summer vacations. As we drove closer to Kincardine memories of past trips began flooding back to me. I always greatly enjoyed playing on the beautiful sandy beaches and swimming in the blue green water. It felt like I was somewhere special. For a week or two I got to experience what felt like another world. Full of sand dunes, stars and a weird connection where the four brothers would oddly get along with each other. We parked near Macpherson park where my parents would take us to burn off some steam and get out of the cottage. Sadly, the diving board has been removed from the wharf. Apparently there were some accidents fueled by alcohol and a lowering water level. The jump from that board was an unbelievable rush as a kid.
We originally planned to stay near Inverhuron where there is a large park filled with Sand dunes and a beautiful sandy beach, but by the time we explored Macpherson park and walked to the end of the pier it was getting a little late to get back on the road and it seemed like we could see a promising parking and sleeping location on the other side of the harbour where the Marina was located. We popped over there and were able to find a wonderful little parking lot tucked away from the marina. We were sandwiched between a thick row of trees to the east of us and the beach, board walk and lake to the west. What a sunset. It is something I remember fondly of this place as I sat on the beach and watched the sun light up the sky as it sank into the middle of the mighty Lake Huron far to the west.
