While on the back roads of Carleton County on Saturday we drove through a small community called Lakeville. There was a bridge over a small stream that flowed from a lake called Williamstown Lake. The lake is a good size (on the map) but only a very small portion is visible from the bridge.
Murray pulled over and I got out to take pictures.
Sitting on the ice was a small flock of Canada geese.
And just to my left were a few more all snuggled on the ice in this cove protected from the cold wind.
A handsome pair.
There is a small dam here where the water runs under the bridge...
and out the other side into a stream.
Next to the parking spot is this beautiful cairn erected by
Ducks Unlimited in memory of Ralph B. Williams III.
He was a young man.
This little old rocking horse was on the veranda of the house
next to the stream. I thought it was so cute and colourful.
This pretty church was just down the road.
You see? You just never know what you'll see on the back roads.
I'm glad you came along with me again.
The storm that has been crossing the continent all week is to make a stopover in the Maritimes tonight and tomorrow. We are to get a few centimeters of snow and a lot of wind. Ugh!
But, for today, it's sunny and clear, although very chilly.
Enjoy your weekend!
