Day Trip April 7th: Bunker Hill Rd. Part 3

It was another trek! This was a long leg. Part of the two hour section. We just kept driving, enjoying the homes, the lakes and rivers of our fair part of the country. We had veered from plan A, to Westport, to plan B, Myer's Cave, to try find that sweet spot where we saw the otters.
We motored on... Beyos Rd., Bunker Hill Rd., Buck Bay Rd. Bob's Lake Rd. ALMOST a straight line.

Old barns, windy roads, houses large and small.

The rock cuts are lovely.

Then, some water! Open water! And swans!!!

Right on the edge of the ice.

Back on the road.

This is a road through a swamp, which was quite wet! Then, the basement of an old barn.

Bob's Lake Rd. crosses Bob's Lake!

This place is lovely, right down to the lake it goes.

Hubby liked this spot, with the water rushing beside the house. I suppose it could have been a mill, at one time. There was no where to stop. Barely wide enough for two cars.

This was another sweet spot. I think it is still Bob's Lake, a wee bay.
There were some ducks. A shy Wood duck and, perhaps, a mallard? It was good to see. It was amazing that one side of the water was open, the other still frozen.

Sadly, empty plastic water bottles had been dumped.

Lovely with ice and snow to the water's edge. Then the 3 story home with huge chimneys outside, maybe gas heating? You must get some spring weather soon.

Spring is a good time to get out and hit the road. It's an interesting season. We see things , that in summer, are hidden by leaves.
