We had a sunny day yesterday, and it also dawned on us that, quite suddenly, autumn colours were at their prime, so we headed out on a drive to see what we could see. Because recent high winds have knocked a lot of leaves down prematurely, the colours may not have been quite up to usual standards, but, as you can see from the photos above where we crossed the Madawaska River on our way to Renfrew, they weren't too shabby either.
It was Cuppa who decided that we should go for a drive, and when the lady speaks I listen. We drove to and through Renfrew and then crossed the Ottawa River into Quebec. We hadn't been to that area previously. The crossing to Quebec was basically made over a power dam, and we returned via the ferry that operates out of Quyon, Quebec. On the road to the ferry we passed this decrepit fairgrounds building with Elvis looming large.
