"Oh Canada Eh! Game video ~ photos taken during our visit to the Village of Lion's Head"

"Lion's Head, Bruce Peninsula  is a peaceful port village, located on the shores of Isthmus bay. Surrounded by beautiful limestone cliffs which, when viewed from Georgian Bay, resemble the head of a lion, giving Lion's Head its name."

"This way to the water."
The Visit Lions Head website describes the main Lion's Head Beach as follows ~ "A quiet and quaint beach, Lion's Head Beach is the place where you literally watch time go by. Nestle in with a good book and dig your toes into the sand. Build a sand castle or play in the playground with your kids. Pack a picnic lunch and use the charcoal BBQs. Minutes from restaurants, shops, and the grocery store for snacks. This beach is home to the Saturday Farmer's Market and free open air concerts on Friday evenings."
