Kingston Mills Road is Open!

I had a little craft project to do today so I thought I would take it to Kingston Mills and work on it there.   The signs are still up at either end, but I discovered that the road is open!   It has been closed a long time–maybe a year.   It was scheduled to be finished in May, but  we had wild, high water flow in the spring,  and it washed out some of the road so the repairs were extended.   I was there just the night before last and it was still closed, although I couldn’t see why, but anyway, today you can get through.  Obviously not too many people know about it because the road is very quiet.

A lot of trains came through while I was there!

Anyone know what kind of berries these are?   I went to Google Images but I am not getting a clear answer.  There are several berries that look similar.

As I returned to the car, I heard an exquisite bird song and I am pretty sure it was a hermit thrush, because it reminds me so much of my favourite BC bird song–the Swainson’s Thrush.   I have only heard very brief snippets of their song twice since I have been in Ontario but this one stayed in one place and sang for quite a while.  During the first few minutes a freight train was going by, which was frustrating, but it eventually disappeared and I was able to enjoy the song.  It was still singing when I left.

The new bridge–still one lane.

Coming home along Hwy. 15.  Strip malls and big box stores going in on the west side of the highway.

    • Sorry Doug. I don’t think that’s it. The leaves are a little different and the berries don’t hang the same. These ones are one or two on each little branch. Thanks for trying though.
