On a daytrip
Don't you know!
Rideau Ferry at the beach
The icy edge it did not reach
I saw a frog jump in the lake
Sadly too quick the snap to take
On the bay I saw some birds
Turkey vultures, not in herds
Next we went to see the islands
Up and down, upon the highlands
Potholes galore it was a mess
Bravely navigated with finesse
Beehives ready for to spring
Joyous colours soon to bring

The Big Rideau is melting!
Beehives are ready to go!
McDonald's Bay boat launch had a pair of turkey vultures, gulls, and mergansers diving for food, off in the distance.
This road had lots of potholes! Poor hubby! See the video below for the pain I put him through. Good thing he loves me. It's a lovely spot, but the road was 'not maintained by the county!'
The summer markets stands look so bleak. The old barn I need to sketch sometime.
Narrows Locks: a pine tree was damaged in our ice storm. There were no birds, as I had hoped.
We spotted swans on the ice there last year, in April! The ice is going much more quickly this year.
The smaller ponds around Murphys Point Park are melting.
Watch for deer on the road! They are moving out of their winter yards. Can you see her in the next photo?!
We tend to have hubby drive, me snap photos. This is the road I put him on!
