Our county, Lanark, proclaims itself the Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario. We frequently take visitors out to Wheelers Maple Sugar Camp to experience this bit of local flavour. So, Sunday found us taking the 45 minute drive to [near] McDonalds Corners. There are two maple syrup operations nearer us, but Wheelers is our preference.
Wheelers is a family owned enterprise. They built the restaurant and other buildings themselves. I m always impressed when I walk in.

Maple syrup makes people happy. ↑
After the food comes a quick tour of the boiler room. ↓
There is a play area for the kids as Frances swings ↑ and JJ emerges from the sliding tube. ↓
There are rockers outside the museum for the adults. Andrea got the baby bear rocker ↑. Meanwhile, AC roamed inside and took a few pics, including this one ↓ of old cast iron pans and utensils.
The children rejoined us. Frances sat quietly. Danica did not. ↓
All in all, it was a pleasant outing, followed by the drive home and time to sit and wag the chins.
