I’m taking a video course this summer (Make Films with Xanthe Berkeley), so in an effort to improve my skills, I put together a three-minute video. I wanted to capture a recent visit to Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada (PEC) for a family getaway in moving pictures as well as stills this time.
I’m a big fan of the County as locals call it, which is really a beautiful island, and I adore islands, as many of you know. In past summers, we’ve sailed around it, using Waupoos Marina as our base.
But PEC is also an up-and-coming Ontario wine region, which is producing award-winning wines and becoming a preferred destination for wine lovers and foodies from the nearby big urban centres of Toronto and Ottawa. However, even with its success and newfound popularity, it hasn’t lost its “realness,” its friendliness or its old-fashioned charm.
You can still find boxes by the side of the road where you can leave your money for produce on the honour system.
In wineries throughout the county, you can still meet with the actual owners/winemakers who are more than pleased to pour their wine for you and share their passion for what they make and how they make it.
Prince Edward County is also home to three of the best beaches in Canada. As youngsters my sister and I spent many a happy day at Sandbanks and we decided to go back for another visit, this time with cameras. It did not disappoint.
On top of that, there’s lots of great restaurants and places for food lovers to satisfy all their desires. We were only there for a couple of days but I still couldn’t cram all the places we went to in this short little video. I may have to do another post…

Great job on the video! And lovely looking place. That Glenora ferry made me chuckle – it looks ever so much like a slightly smaller version of our Gabriola ferry.
Oh what fun, and your video was so well done. Enjoyed it, could almost taste the wine and feel the beach breezes.
This was precious Sherry…thoroughly enjoyed it.
Your video is wonderful, Sherry!
Thank you for taking us along with you.
Bravo my friend — great job on the video! And your description here in the blog sounds like you’re describing where I live here on Vancouver Island.
Love this Sherry. I loved taking this class and love doing videos. Something about them that are so peaceful to me. They are a lot of work but most things are in life. Enjoyed seeing this through your eyes and seeing you also enjoying your time there on the island. Thanks for sharing.
What a fun video Sherry! It was such a nice visit to tour the island at your guidance. Beautifully done! The class may be my next project after summer. Thank you!!
Well done debut video, Sherry. Looks like a really nice place to spend some time.
So real, I feel like I was there! LOL
