Day Trip Sat., Apr. 7th Perth => Canoe Lake Rd. part 1

How about a drive?
Sure, where to?
This was the plan! It wasn't the final trek.

I liked the trip along Canoe Lake Rd., and Desert Lake Rd. The is recommended by someone in our volunteer office.

The plan was to have lunch, after our loop, in Westport.

Topsy Farms hat on my head, we were on our way!

10:53 a.m. – 2 hours, 10 minutes

Off we went. It was a lovely day. Outside it was -1 C., but the sun has the strength to warm the car.
Unfortunately, after an hour of driving, and cold air on my legs, I FINALLY realized that the air conditioner had come on, and I should turn off the heating system!

Can you see the black cow in the creek? Seriously...


Westport, Canoe Lake Rd., to Desert Lake Rd. 

Canoe Lake Rd.

Cottages are not open yet, that will likely happen on the May long weekend. The ice makes it really cold.

I love how the road hugs the lake.

This woman, I think, had just gotten her pond pump going!

You can see how the melt water melts the lake water as it flows in through the culverts.

Forest Farm, Wintergreen Studio, nestled into the forest.

I asked JB to turn around, as I missed this little truck cab in the forest. Barely visible!

This was interesting. Two signs. It looks like they tried to sell their 95 acres themselves (Property Guys) then went with an agent. There is one sign two many, though. It is lakefront, so I was curious its price. I couldn't find either listing.

The roads were getting fudgy in the sunshine.

The houses are quite different, and reflect a variety of price points.

These are photos for Rock Girl! My daughter, with her M.Sc. in Hydrogeology.

There are lots of resorts. This is Snug Harbour Resort.

Soon, we landed in Hartington, and met some birds. Finally! That is my next post.

Lovely pics, still lots of ice and snow, and "For Sale"?? Are you thinking of moving? We have the first good fall of snow down south today, 40cm on one pass, 60cm on the other, Looks like we did the trip with good timing.
