Cool swim at the Beach
Zip down to Port Stanley, Ontario from St. Thomas down Highway 4, its only a 15 minute trip. While there grab a large fries and Orangade from "Mackie's", the legendary restaurant on the beach...its worth it. For a cool swim away from all the tourists...make your way to the other side of the Kettle Creek channel to "Little Beach". This is where the locals go to swim as it is quiet, sandy and protected from any rough water on Lake Erie. The sandy bottom extends for at least 50 yards out and its a great place for the kids.
