Seeing the kids less this summer, we are more able to take a few daytrips, some of which we haven't get around to in 11 years in this place.
The first one was to Foley Mountain near Westport, Actually, I didn't even know of this place until a Flickr friend posted of it a year or two ago. The highlight seems to be the outlook from Spirit Rock. The view is pretty good, and I think it would be good to return here in autumn.
That's the western endge of Upper Rideau Lake on the left and the Westport Sand Pond on the right. Of course, the town is Westport.
We didn't stay too long as the bugs were a little overpowering, and once we had seen the view ... well, we had seen the view.
From there we headed to the Narrows Lock at the eastern edge of Upper Rideau Lake, where we had a picnic supper and took a few pictures. We picnicked facing Upper Rideau with Big Rideau to our backs and the lock to the right. The second photo shows a boat docked at the lock for the night with Big Rideau in the background.
I did take a few photos looking toward Upper Rideau Lake. I got a few decent sunset photos here once before but with few clouds in the sky we didn't wait for sunset this time.
I was going to scrunch another daytrip into this blog, but it's long enough, so stay tuned this this station for breaking developments.
