Water, Water Everywhere

BEACHES AND SPARKLING WATERS If you enjoy the water, then Saugeen Shores is the perfect place for you! Beautiful Lake Huron provides the perfect venue for swimming, sailing, yachting, scuba diving, kayaking…the list just keeps on going! Sparkling water on a warm day…what more can you want! The fine grain sand beaches in our area are perfect for walking, running, playing and relaxing. Saugeen Shores’ beaches offer a variety of experiences; from a busy beachfront with lots of conveniences, to a secluded beachfront offering no attractions and amenities. Lovely views from our beaches include beautiful Lake Huron, a harbour and a lighthouse. Gobles Grove, Eidt’s Grove, Port Elgin and Southampton beaches await! Saugeen Shores 2013 Visitors Guide | www.saugeenshores.ca


PADDLE THE SAUGEEN Whether in a kayak or canoe paddling on Lake Huron or the Saugeen River is one of nature’s greatest stress relievers. Saugeen River features many access points; seven of which are located within Saugeen Shores. Paddle for a couple of hours or a few days. The Saugeen River offers everything from rapids to gently flowing water. If you don’t have a canoe or kayak, you can rent one from a local outfitter!

Saugeen Shores 2013 Visitors Guide | www.saugeenshores.ca


HARBOUR Boats of all sizes stop in at the award winning Port Elgin Harbour. Boats can be launched at the harbour in Port Elgin or at the Chesley Street river launch in Southampton. If you like to be on the water but motor boats aren’t your thing, consider renting a canoe or kayak from a local outfitter. Lake Huron and the Saugeen River are amazing locations for your “on the water” experiences. 10

Saugeen Shores 2013 Visitors Guide | www.saugeenshores.ca


FAIRY LAKE Sparkling Fairy Lake is filled with swans, ducks, geese, turtles and carp and is a nature lover’s oasis. Take a stroll along the walking path or just relax on one of the benches. In the summer enjoy the Sunday night bandshell concerts at Fairy Lake. Located in the heart of Southampton, by the corner of High Street and Victoria Street.

FISHING The waters of Lake Huron are home to many different varieties of fish and offer a wonderful setting for you to reel one in. Alternately, grab your hip waders and try out the Saugeen River which offers a totally different fishing experience. Port Elgin has a fish cleaning station and is home to a fish hatchery. If you have kids who want to give fishing a try, Saugeen Shores offers a fishing dock for children right in the Port Elgin harbour. If you want to take your kids fishing but don’t have fishing equipment: visit the Southampton or Port Elgin library with your library card and ask for their Tackle Share program.

HMS GENERAL HUNTER SHIPWRECK The now famous Southampton beach shipwreck was buried for almost 200 years before its timbers were discovered on the beach. To ensure continued preservation of the fragile remains, the shipwreck remains buried between Morpeth and Palmerston Streets, marked by a protective quarried stone barrier. Volunteers excavated the site in 2001 and 2004. A replica of a large portion of the battle-ready working deck of the HMS General Hunter warship can be viewed at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre. From March 2013 you can be the captain of your own ship with an all new virtual reality experience.

SCENIC SURROUNDINGS A rewarding way to explore our area and its scenery is to head out for a leisurely wander. We offer picturesque communities and spectacular rural settings. Perhaps enjoy an idyllic picnic on our shoreline or in one of our many parks. It doesn’t matter if you opt to travel by car, motorcycle or bicycle; there are countless treasures to see along the way. Sometimes it’s nice to get off the main roads and just explore at your whim. If you prefer to have a map to navigate your way around, just stop into either of our information offices for an up to date version.

FAMOUS SUNSETS

PHOTO BY JADZIA VONHEYMANN

According to Environment Canada, perfect conditions exist along the shores of Lake Huron for that million dollar sunset. Those conditions, reports Gary May on MyNewWaterfrontHome.com, are: unobstructed westerly views, smog free skies and some of the longest hours of summer sunshine in Canada. This scientific evidence comes from Environment Canada meteorologist David Phillips, who has said his favourite place for a “magic moment” sunset is in Port Elgin. Based on these criteria, Saugeen Shores can legitimately claim some of the best sunsets in Ontario! Saugeen Shores 2013 Visitors Guide | www.saugeenshores.ca
