Weekend in Muskoka

Added on by Bill.

We're spending this weekend at a little inn on Lake of Bays. From here it is a short drive into Algonquin Park where we can walk the paths and enjoy what remains of the colours. It's a cool and misty day with forecast periods of drizzle. Perfect weather for photography!

Portage Inn, Lake of Bays

The inn was built in 1889 and now reflects the character of this vintage: large rooms, slanted floors, heavy construction and a large stone fireplace in the dinning room. It is this character that makes the place so endearing.

Lower Don

We loaded our bikes into the trunk and headed south.  We parked at the Brickworks on Bayview, and then rode a few hundred meters north along Bayview to Pottery Road where we caught the Lower Don River Trail.  We rode north Don Mills.

Tommy Thompson

Added on by Bill.

Monday we drove down to Tommy Thompson Park. We were there early, there were few people, lots of birds. The air was still. It wasn't too hot but there was some humidity. 

I realised I hadn't shot digital for a while. The convenience of digital was a nice change. Yet I'm now a little more patient. A little more thoughtful about what I shoot.
