We left Lake Eugenia and headed for home, down into the valley through Kimberley and Heathcote, stopping for butter tarts on the way. Here's my continuing travelogue; it would look just about the same today. (You have to read the past two posts to make sense of this). Lots of pictures today!
I've always enjoyed the view as you head north down into the valley.
The barn just south of Kimberley, nestled under the rocks of Old Baldy, has a new Canadian flag.
And in Kimberley they have almost completed a project to make the community centre wheelchair accessible! It houses a small local library, a small kitchen and a large meeting/event room upstairs. They've added both a long ramp to the front door and an elevator to the second floor. A project that I'm very pleased to see!
You get another great view of Old Baldy as you leave the village.
The sand dome isn't as busy as usual so far this winter. There are sand domes scattered all over southern Ontario to store sand for winter spreading.
I caught a quick shot of the Beaver Valley Cidery as we drove past.
And a horse farm. Does anyone know why horse paddocks always have double fences several feet apart like this? I've always wondered.
Another view of the valley. As you drive north the valley spreads out and veers to the east providing a gentler landscape.
Much of the view you see is just white fields, trees and fencerows.
I had never noticed before that the Blackbird Pie Company in Heathcote has the same flock of blackbirds on its truck as on the bakery itself. Rumour has it that they may move to larger premises. We're hoping they do, and that they have room for small cafe! We always buy our chicken pot pies there, the best around!
Just to add to my barn photos, this one is not in such good shape!
The view is often not very colourful at this time of year.
But back in October the same slope was brilliant with fall colour.
We turned the corner to head toward Clarksburg and there was Blue Mountain in front of us.
My last shot was of the high density Red Price apple orchard disappearing in the distance. Hope ypu've enjoyed our three day travelogue!
