Way to the north the Credit River begins. Here, at Port Credit, it reaches its destination. Here it meets Lake Ontario, the ideal spot for lounging.
Here is a harbour replete with charter fishing boats, a popular restaurant, a marina full of pleasure craft that landlubbers find themselves lusting for.
Here are walkways jutting into the lake, a lighthouse that’s both a touch of history and a photographer’s delight. Here is Port Credit Village Marina, host to an art show beside the water, launch-pad for festivals and celebrations that include South Side Shuffle – a musical smorgasbord of jazz and blues; a comedy festival, a waterfront celebration.
Here is your starting point to explore nearby Lakeshore Drive, with its bars, restaurants and boutiques galore, though it’s still all about the lake.
Gaze out at boats gliding past, at sailboat races further to the south. Maybe even head over to another marina nearby, checking out the display of boats for sale and putting down some coin.
For there might only be one thing better than lounging by the lake.
