Murphys Point Provincial Park

This morning was beautiful, warm and sunny and 18C (65F) but I only took a short walk as we had plans to go to Murphys Point Provincial Park near Perth today.

We arrived at the park somewhere around noon, paid our $11.00 admission fee (highway robbery) and drove around one of the campgrounds (too many trees for our satellites), the road is also quite narrow with trees lining the way so it would be difficult for us to get in and the sites aren’t any too large. We had our picnic lunch that I packed at a picnic table at the boat launch on Big Rideau Lake. We then looked for a trail but some of them aren’t very well marked. We walked on the Loon Lake Trail and part way on the McParlin Trail. The Provincial Parks really need to mark their trails better. We didn’t see anything other than a few black squirrels, chipmunks and the usual robins, red wing blackbirds etc. We could have done any of the trails in Ottawa for free and seen just as much or more. Anyway we arrived home around 4:00 p.m. I then sat outside for a while under the tree to read but it got cool so I came in and finished my Rosamunde Pilcher book.

Here are a few photos that I took today.

It was a beautiful day today with temperatures reaching about 27C (80F).
