Along the River

Most of this is one of my possible commutes to work.  I don’t usually take it, because I don’t usually leave myself enough time.  😦

You can’t really read the top picture, but this part of the old Woolen Mill is where they publish the Kingston Whig Standard now.

This is a great location for a home.  It is River St, just off Rideau St., but the street doesn’t join Rideau and you are tucked away quite nicely and could very well be in the country.

There were a LOT of waterfowl on the river this morning.  There were the usual geese and mallards, but I think many of them were American Widgeons and there were other kinds that I could not figure out on the Ontario duck sites.  It even looked like a couple of coots, but I don’t think you get coots around here.

An old barge that sunk next to the Woolen Mill.  I’ve heard that there are a few here.  This one becomes exposed when the water is low.

The colours look dull in this photo, but they were really very lovely.

Conacher Drive at Sutherland, at the Montreal St. end.  I remember when there were no houses and a huge fir tree here.   We are heading off on our drive to Jones Falls at this point.
