The best way to end any vacation is to spend some time at the beach, soaking in the sun. Grand Bend was our first choice, and it also worked out that we could visit my husband's family, who were camping close by. I was desperate for the beach; I love just sitting and reading in the sand, basking in the sun, and being able to just go out and swim if I want to. We didn't end up spending the day there, as the kids wanted to use the swimming pool at the camp ground instead, but my husband did manage to sneak us out around sunset to go and watch it sink over the water (the other most amazing time to go to any lake). So, I didn't get my full day in the sand, but we got the sunset, and that was enough.
Ripley's Aquarium of Canada is at once a mass of humans, fish, and chaos. Don't get me wrong, it was a fantastic experience, but would have been just that little bit better without the swarms of people. In 2 - 3 years it will be a great destination for families of little ones to go during a holiday, right now it's a risk. At one point we actually saw a dad running around trying to find one of his kids, which he did thankfully. We had to make sure to have our eyes, and most of the time hands, on our little one. At a section just for kids, a tube running through water for them to crawl through, my little one wanted to go through but there was a line. We were waiting patiently, while a dad was crouched in the way watching his kid, then he quickly got up and walked directly into my daughter (she almost fell) and said nothing, just went on his way.
I love the Royal Ontario Museum! I could spend hours and hours there roaming the different exhibits and learning all I can about history and the past. With a child, however, we are limited with the time we can spend, the amount we can see, and the exhibits we should visit to keep her entertained.
