It was time.

It was time for a lot of things.

One of them was a well deserved 2 weeks vacation after a tumultuous year.

But it wasn't enough to sit on my ass, get fat while zoning out on TV or video games. And no, I just didn't want to do a regular photo walk this time.

Then a boyhood memory popped back in my head: I was a 10 year old stamp collector when Canada Post made available a 5$ stamp featuring a marsh and bird scene inspired by the world famous Pointe Pelee National Park.

Heck - I was only a 3 hour drive away and even though late August isn't peak time for birding or monarchs, I felt I had enough knowledge and gear to go and see what this place was all about.

A flurry of purchases, packing, fact finding and reservations then ensued. And I then took off.

So here's the story of the adventure...
