All Over the Place!!

Today I had to drive up to Marmora.  It was a gorgeous day for it!  I took all the back roads and checked out little places I had never been to, and made one delightful discovery.

Well looky here–we have a green line around the picture.  Where the heck did that come from?   My computer is going crazy and doing all kinds of strange things.   I don’t mind the line.  Just wish it wasn’t green.  (Looking at the finished product–there is no green line.)

Anyway, this little donkey was a delightful surprise, but not the surprise I am referring to.

These were a delightful surprise as well–the first time I have seen snow buntings.  Very cute.

However,  imagine my joy to turn the corner and find the very charming hamlet of Lonsdale!   I had never been here before.

This is the old mill, and, according to Google Maps, it is a B&B, although I didn’t see a sign today.

The Salmon River runs on both sides of the mill.  Are there salmon in this river?  I don’t think so.

Can you tell that I like this building?   Look at the fence along the front porch!  And look, a little rhododendron bush under a shelter.  You don’t see many of them around here.

This is on Marysville Road, which takes a little jog here.   This discovery was totally by accident because I wasn’t planning on coming this way.  I got turned on to the wrong road, looked at the map, and saw that I could get to where I wanted (Blessington Road) by this route as well, so kept going.  I’ll have to come here again.

There was another surprise in store for me here too.  Stay tuned tomorrow.
