Springside Park Napanee

This is part of our serious lunch trip, 116 km!
It's a lovely park! We passed it on our way in to the restaurant. You have to get there early to get a river-side seat, though! We arrived at 11:30, and snatched a table. Afterwards, we headed back to the park. It was the Napanee Mills back in the day.

There was serious grooming by the birds. Much fun.

I love the signage. Lots to learn, or things I've forgotten about glaciation, the Precambrian Shield and our blessed First Nations who put up with us.

This seagull was hopeful, but if you feed em' there will be trouble!

The light standards have been sponsored by individuals. Very poignant!

There is something peaceful about the river flowing by. This video I will go back to in the November freezing rain or hail!

Looks like a nice place. I actually spent two days there once upon a time, but I didn't see much because I was taking workshops at the high school.

A very pleasant area. Looks like there's a good deal of wildlife around.

Getting out in the summer was a good plan.

116 Kms is some lunch date. Looks like it was well worth it though. Glorious scenery, nice weather and birds and animals to boot. Have a wonderful week Jennifer.
