enRoute Magazine recommends Om Sup because: "Om Sup: Find balance (in more ways than one) atop Lake Ontario’s lapping waves, thanks to yoga instructor Melanie Woolsey and her enthusiastic team. First, you’ll work on your stability and core strength by stand-up paddleboarding away from the Cobourg shoreline. Then, go beyond walking on water with a meditative yoga session of sun salutations, cat-cow poses and even head stands. (Thankfully, it’s easier than it sounds.)" Om Sup http://www.omsup.ca/

Parks & Nature

It's beautiful. From the park's web site: - World’s largest baymouth barrier dune formation - Three expansive sandy beaches that some say are among the best in Canada; Outlet Beach is perfect for families, with shallow waters and gentle drop off - Location jutting out into Lake Ontario means that this park is a bird migration hotspot in spring and fall - Walking trails that allow visitors to experience the dune and wetland habitats of the park - Daily interpretive programming for the whole family during summer months - Great starting point to explore Prince Edward County known for its bicycle touring, wineries, food and antiques
