Port Dover~A Sleepy Little Lakeside Town

Today we had a glorious photoshoot in the sleepy little lakeside town of Port Dover, Ontario which is about 10 minutes from our place in Simcoe. Nestled along the coast of Lake Erie, it is a very well known tourist destination as well as popular commercial and recreational fishing spot. What Port Dover is also famous for is its Friday the 13th days where over 200 000 bikers descend on the town for the day.
It is also a great spot for shooting some of our newest vintage clothing for summer. These photos were shot at the East Pier where the commerical fishing boats are docked and where the latest Romero directed zombie movie was filmed! The other location is the Port Dover Harbour Museum! Enjoy!!
