Sherkston Shores Resort - First Day

Sherkston Shores Beach Resort and Campground is a community on the sandy beaches of Lake Erie not far from Niagara Falls. It has a variety of guests including transient RV and tent campers, seasonal campers and cottage owners. Heather arranged to rent a cottage on the shore for six nights.

The Welcome Centre gave us tags for each car that would let us pass through the front gate and then directed us to Surf Loop #8. The young lady told us the road was one way but admitted she had not spent much time on the property. There was a misunderstanding so that, when we got there, we ended up stuck in a lane between Surf Loop and Mariner Crescent. Once we figured it all out, we parked out front where we belonged.

Heather had placed an order with Zehr's grocery store in Welland that had to be picked up by 5:00 PM. She and I hustled over there in the Equinox, arriving about 4:45. I picked up some milk for Sandy and the Zehr's staff loaded Heather's things. On the way over, we drove UNDER a ship as we went through the Main Street Tunnel.

After supper, we took a walk along Sunset Beach and then Tom started a fire in the fire pit by the lake that belonged to our cottage. The kids made S'mores from a kit while those of us on low carb diets looked on.

Is that a gull I see...?

Our place is on the other side of those trees

Those are enough rules for me....

The streets and cottages are well maintained

The group except for Jasper...

...who ducks photos whenever he can

Dusk is upon us

Only 8:00 PM

They call it Sunset Beach for a reason

Almost gone

Evening bathers as the light fades - no sharks here

Something in a marshmallow?

As darkness fell, we sat around the fire but, eventually, the long day took its toll. We doused the fire with sand and turned in for the night.
