Our dentist is in Carleton Place, a 45-minute drive, so off we went for noon, Wednesday, Oct. 13th. The wetland looks lovely. It was to be a wonderful Autumn day!
The maple trees are always wonderful in Autumn. I liked the car colour, too!
The sumac, what can I say? It is my fave.
I loved the colours. Wouldn't one of these front loaders be great?!
Burning bush, with one of those totally ridiculous signs.
Two drivers, both important people I am sure, passed us on double lines and curves. The sound and the worry is awful.
A bit freaky!
Gardens are still looking great, but with an overnight temperature of 7˚ C., they won't last long.
Note the driver, wandering over the lines... What, me worry?!
I like this big pot of plants!
After my dental appointment JB suggested we go out to lunch. It was supposed to be a sunny afternoon. Or, at least, partly sunny. It was really cold in the dental office, but warmer on the patio.
What a treat!
This is a lovely patio.
Late lunch is served!
The river was lovely!
I didn't bring the zoom lens, but there was a blue heron in the river, at the bottom of the photo, on the long rock. Maybe you'll have to trust me!
The river sounds wonderful. There is something about moving water.
The Boston Ivy reminds me of our house in Toronto. There was a factory behind us, with huge old Boston Ivy leaves that would change colour in fall!
This is the pub across the river.
We entertained the thought of parking here, but I noticed the sign restricted parking to only 30 minutes! Someone else did not notice it. Whoopsie!
I'm sure there is a good story here!
There is lots of Hallowe'en decor up!
I liked this cloud. Almost a sea serpent!
And, home and safe! What a lovely day, despite being at the dentist!
