I don't seem to be doing much writing these days. Photos seem to be occupying me more lately, so I thought I'd share a few. The first two were taken at Almonte, a town just north of us, also on the Mississippi River. As you can begin to see, there are waterfalls there, and it was once quite the mill town. And I guess you recognize the model.
The next two photos are taken at a little conservation area, called the Mill of Kintail, just outside of Almonte. It was a mill a long time ago, and later a prominent doctor bought the property. His house is now a delightful little museum.
We visited Kintail the other day because there will be a wedding there on the weekend and we wanted to figure out where we were to go. Now that we've found it, we will go back and explore some of the trails. I think we'll be able to cycle there — and maybe take a picnic lunch. The couple that is to be married are friends of our kids, and we are invited to the reception. They were putting up the tents when we were there. I may post some more photos of this place in the next few days.
