The first long weekend of the 'summer' season has come and gone. On Saturday the weather was cloudy with sunny breaks so we did some yard work. We usually go to St. Andrews on this particular Victoria Day holiday weekend but not this year.
We decided to take a short Sunday drive between our church services as it was a beautiful sunny day and it was calling for rain on the holiday Monday. It turned out to be a smart idea.
We drove out a country road shown in the first photo and came to a fork in the road with this beautiful tree lined lane above.
We continued on through the original road and came upon the lake.
The above photo is of the swamp on one side of the road. It was so full that it was creeping onto the roadway in one spot.
And here is the lake on the opposite side.
There are cottages and homes around this lake. Isn't it beautiful?
There were people out canoeing, kayaking and fishing.
The road crosses a ravine with a waterfall and this old bridge over it has seen better days.
We didn't walk through the woods and down the steep trail to see the falls but I took pictures from both sides of the bridge.
This falls is quite spectacular during the early spring run off.
The stream on the upper side of the falls.
This old road was very rough in spots with big rocks sticking up and lots of pot holes. It was a slow drive. ;)
We eventually came out to the end and the St. John River.
And a paved road that is a wee bit smoother than the dirt road.
It has it's pot holes and rough patches too.
I hope you enjoyed our country road drive.
Monday proved to be rainy and cool and it's cloudy today.
Spring seems to be dragging it's heels in our neck of the woods.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Oklahoma after the devastating tornados. Please be safe during these terrible storms that are crossing the continent.
Blessings to you.
