Tuesday & Wednesday November 9 & 10, 2010


This morning was cloudy again with a bit of a breeze so even though it was 2C (36F), the windchill made it -1C (30F), still not half bad and certainly didn't hinder my morning walk.

Other than doing some cleaning this morning and putting up a new piece of border (which fell down AGAIN), I just read and spent time on the computer. I think I might have had a nap late this afternoon.


It was only 1C (34F) this morning but the sun was shining brightly and it was a warm sun! I took my camera with me today and headed over to Old Sly Road where there are two locks. Of course, the locks are now closed for the season but I wanted to see if I could get anywhere near the falls since the foliage has died back. I was able to see them but not clearly as there are still tree branches and stuff in the way. I took my camera along.

This is as close to the Falls as I could get without being in the water. You still can't get the full view.

 Since it was such a beautiful day I suggested we go somewhere. I packed a lunch and after some discussion on where to go (I had suggested Morrisburg, the area where I grew up). I indicated to Gordon that it was the journey, not the destination but we decided to go to the pretty little town of Westport in the Rideau Lakes District. It's about 58 km (36 mi) or so from here so not a great distance.

We stopped a few times on our way to take some photos.

Horses playing

I think the two brown ones were mother and son, they seemed to be having a good time.

We had a nice time today. It was so good to see the sun again!


  1. I'm with you what an odd looking shed. Thanks for the tour. I can't wait to get there.

  2. I loved the old adirondack chairs, although you needed a cushion to sit in one for very long.

  3. We always enjoy going along!

  4. You find such interesting places near where you live.
    I would love to visit that area, but probably never will.
    Lovely pictures, as usual.
    The horses are so frolicky!
    Thanks for sharing all the views with us.
