Mer Bleue Outing

My sister, Faith, told me about this really great place to take the kidlets for a walk called Mer Bleue.  It’s very close to our house and I’d only heard of it in passing before.  There are actually a number of trails to walk at Mer Bleue but she recommended the Boardwalk trail.

We went last Saturday and it was beautiful!  We highly recommend this trail for smaller children — it’s only 1.2 km from start to finish, it’s a flat trail,  and you can easily take a stroller or wagon.  We had perfect weather for a walk, the sun was out and it was early enough in the day to not be too hot.

The area is a highly acidic peat bog (the kidlets actually let us read all the informative plaques — that doesn’t happen often!).  It’s a fragile ecosystem and it’s full of red wing black birds, turtles, frogs, water spiders, and plants more typical of the tundra.

If you have some free time on a sunny day, you should definitely go!
