7) We will miss the diversity of Grand Bend


Grand Bend is incredibly diverse. The Pinery Provincial Park is one of the nicest parks in the province and just across the highway from our place. There is an 8 km bike path that will take you from the Pinery to downtown. We have enjoyed biking, hiking and canoeing at the Pinery. The Parachute club is just east of town and while I am confident it is something I will never do myself, I do enjoy watching first jumps out of GB on the internet. We have yet to get to the dragstrip but I love to hear the roar of the engines when we are sitting by the fire and the wind is blowing in the right direction. Our next door neighbours race so we get updates from them. The Grand Bend Motorplex attracts thousands of people every summer. We do get to the Huron County Playhouse once or twice a year. Alex Mustakas does a brilliant job directing this very professional theatre troupe which is part of Drayton Entertainment. The theatre is unique and just oozes character. These are just 4 examples of the diversity of our little gem. Thanks to Rhea of burnt marshmallows for the Pinery pic. Once again here is the Burgerfest parachute jump from 2008 and a beautiful view of the Bend.
