Rideau Canal

This is the part of the Rideau Canal that leads upriver to the Poonamalie Lock at the beginning of Rideau Lake.  We spent 4 days cruising the system from Merrickville up to the end of Big Rideau Lake and back - Fabulous excursion!

Black Snake Root

This late summer bloomer, Black Snake Root, sure attracts the bees, who, I'm sure, are ecstatic as there are few flowers in bloom this time of year.

These lake shore grasses look like stalks of gold.

Float Plane

Here's the float plane I was on from which I took the pictures posted below.  She's a 50 year old beauty.

Trout Lake

I went for a float plane flight yesterday afternoon with Butcher Brophey.  We flew over the city for a bit and then flew east over Trout Lake and down the Mattawa River system.  This a view looking east over Trout Lake.

Blue Flag

I love these flowers, and, unfortunately, so do the deer.

Summer Dock

It's been a fabulous summer for spending time on the dock and in the water - sure hope it continues for much longer.
