(visited by David Coombs and Kate Johnson)

23-Nov-2008 -- Just 2 1/2 weeks since we were walking about in shorts in London Ontario winter seems to have arrived. Two days of snow have changed the appearance of the countryside to a uniform white. But as the sun was out this morning we decided to go and have a look at Lake Huron and visit this point on the way.

As mentioned by previous visitors the point is very close to where the Forest road (Highway 21) leaves Highway 402. The choice is to park west of the point and cross the fields or drive round to the farm and approach along a farm track. We went round to the farm and asked permission. The farmer's wife said we were very welcome to visit the point but as her husband was away and she was leaving shortly we should be careful not to get stuck as nobody would be around to help. I assured her that we would walk the 300 metres to the point.

The track was covered by up to a foot of fresh snow. Not too bad, and we soon made the point. In the snow it easy to see the CP dance steps. After visiting the point we drove to Ipperwash Beach on Lake Huron - no swimmers in the freezing water.
