It almost felt like a winter storm at times last night on the Rideau Canal. There was just so much Milkweed flying around. Only problem, some of it managed to get in my beer that I was drinking at the 8 Locks’ Flat pub. But given the view and the sunset, I will admit that it was a fair trade-off.   [google_map address=’348′ coordinates=’45.421151,-75.685149′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

Thankfully, I was able to grab a tree branch behind me and prevent complete disaster. Only damage was to my shoes which may now be permanently dyed brown. One thing I can say for sure is that the effort […]

Finally managed to make it down to Manotick, even if it was only for a few minutes to grab this photo of Watson’s Mill. I have to say I was quite impressed with the place. I have seen a lot of mills in complete disrepair but this one looked like it was in pretty good shape. Also the area around it is just perfect for a little picnic or just hanging out on a lazy Sunday! My feeling is I will be heading back one of these days to explore the area properly. Hope everyone has a great start to […]
