Friday afternoon drive

  I did my chores: mulched the leaves, cleaned the fish tank, had my shower and got myself organized. JB suggested a drive. I said we couldn't. All my summer clothes were put away! It was a balmy 23 C.

We took Old Kingston Rd., and the traffic was awful. Big trucks, following us very closely. 






The route we took, Old Kingston Rd., connects Rideau Ferry to highway #15. All the little 'R' roads coming off this road, go down to cottages. Instead of following it to highway #15, we hung a right on CR 38, AKA Briton-Houghton Bay Rd. It didn't say it was dead end, but it was! 



We were being followed by a tricycle, which JB let pass! The speed limit is 60 km/hr, but no one seems to do that. 













No winter parking, apparently.

The homes aren't cheap, the ones on the water, especially! One at 24 R8 sells for $1,380,000




I think this is a fishing resort. Closed for the season, now.



For sale: $798,000 on Old Kingston Rd. There are 50 acres, and it is on the water.

The view from the Rideau Ferry bridge.


The osprey nest, done for the season, is sprouting greenery. The osprey have left. Last year, the nest was blown off by a storm. They had to being again.

I've always admired the maple trees lining the driveway.

Topiary! I love it.

The road less travelled although Old Kingston was speedy. I hadn't thought that it would be like that.

A lovely drive! I went for a hot walk in my fleece pants, it drained me.

Leave the 1.3 million, two storey, maybe OK now but in 10 years??? and go for the 50 acres. You know what is best about that, look at the small tractor with a blade at the front. Maybe they would sell you the tractor, just pop in and ask, an early birthday maybe. Love your autumn colours. XXX

Lovely photos. No one seems to be even close to the speed limits these days and many have no idea what the yellow lines on the roads mean.

That's a well worth it drive.

What a pretty Autumn drive! I never say no to getting out of the house these days.

Good gosh! Your home prices are expensive. It’s like Hawaii. Maybe even more. I do love your Sunday drive. We don’t have any nice place to drive here on Oahu though.
