Sandra: Where do you want to go?
Gordon: I don't know, I thought we might just follow the Tay River.
Sandra: O-Tay! (Humour)
The sun came out here around noon so we headed west. Unfortunately the sun didn't follow us but we did follow the Tay River. We followed it backwards from where it empties into the Lower Rideau Lake to it's inception at Bob's Lake near Bolingbroke. So, we traveled a lot of back roads today and the car looks like it's been mud wrestling!
|The Tay River emptied into Lower Rideau River|
|This is at Bowes' Mill - the old mill is on the left|
|This is another old building at Bowes' Mill - has a gas pump in front of it but building is vacant|
|Probably a Bohemian Waxwing-there were a lot of them around|
|Common Mergansers & 2 geese in the distance|
|And they're off!|
|This was a lovely well-kept old barn-there were more outbuildings painted the same|
|A Canada goose along the Tay|
|Aliens or snowmobiles?|
|We really were on back roads today|
|The Tay River begins at Bob's Lake at Bolingbroke|
Here's a little map of our drive today. We did backtrack quite a bit so it's not exactly where we went, but it's close.
