A Walk Along the Mississippi

Today was a beautiful day, no humidity, just a lot of bright sun and 23C (74F).

I got a fair bit accomplished this morning. I coloured my hair – light ash blonde this time instead of golden and got the place vacuumed. I consider that a ‘fair bit’.

After lunch we decided to go into Carleton Place and see what we could see. From a Vacations magazine for the area I saw that there was a walking trail along the Mississippi but no directions of how to get to it so my husband found it all on his own. It’s a very nice trail, paved part way and then gravel but wide and level. It also has a boardwalk which reminded us of Six Mile Cypress in Fort Myers except without all the birds although we did see ducks and two large white geese. It was a lovely day for a walk. We then drove to the end of Lake Park Road. There’s a campground there called Hayshores. Sounds like he’s just enlarging it but they had a couple of transient spots right on the water. Too expensive though and not as pretty as Tranquil Acres!

Along the Mississippi

When we came home I sat outside for a while and walked around the campground to see what there was to see. That’s about it for today!

  1. What lovely pictures.

    The robins are sooo cute. We have so many birds nesting in the trees and around the school portables. It's always a sure sign of summer to see the little ones learning to fly and chirping.
