If you drive east some two-and-a-half hours and then north for another forty minutes, you’ll come across “The House of International Mystery and Intrigue”. Hang a right there and drive in a precarious road for another kilometer and you’ll arrive at Scots on the Rocks Annie’s lovely home in the middle of nowhere. G and I spent a week hanging out here, paddling, swimming, eating and drinking far too much, getting caught up with Annie and Baby K, fishin’ (well, fishin’ if you consider feeding the rock bass “fishin'”), and touring about the area.
3.4, 5) Baby K joins in feeding the fish
6) she LOVES bubbles; 7) ah, the dock
8) in her suit ready for a swim; 9) Baby K, me and Annie
10) she even cleans!; 11) G enjoys the sunrise on the dock
11 & 12) lily pads … beautiful
13 & 14) beautiful Bedford Mill … but, oh, so buggy!
15) the waterfall outside the Mill; 16) G admires the Mill
17) a very cool old truck outside the Mill
18 & 19) the waterfront at Westport … that one boathouse in picture 19 is not in good shape
20) Newboro Lock – part of the Rideau Canal that connects Ottawa with Kingston; 21) the lock fills
22) a boat waits to enter; 23) the gate opens
24) out you go!
25) we lunched at The Stirling Lodge in Newboro (the place was full of Americans) ; 26) onto gorgeous Perth
27) another lunch at Nick’s Ranch Restaurant in Perth – only open for breaky and lunch; 28) Loeb Park in Perth … a nice reprieve on a hot day
29) … beats me! … strange things you see in downtown Perth
30) G way out swimming; 31) Annie and Baby K arrive home
32) she even sets the table; 33) while Uncle “Nit” (as she calls me) barbeques
33) grilled veggies every night!
