EganvilleWe drove through Eganville, where they were preparing to welcome Melissa Bishop back after her Olympics. Isn't that exciting?!
They had a parade for her!
Melissa Bishop is a Canadian runner who specialises in the 800 metres. She competed in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, and won a silver medal at the 2015 World Athletics Championships. [Wikipedia]
Golden LakeOur first stop was in Golden Lake, by this time it was lunch time! Out the restaurant window, several Monarch butterflies! While JB paid the bill, I dipped my toes into the lake. We considered moving here, at one point, but decided it was too far from our Ottawa family. Also, the shallow lake freezes over in winter, and it becomes a Nascar track for snow machines.
It's a large, shallow, open lake. The gull on the dock looked quite pleased surveying its territory.
The motel was quite at the end of its summer season, preparing to slow down.
Then it was on to Barry's Bay, Madawaska Valley! This store was quite quirky!
Home via Calabogie...where they have a motocross park. The resort was lovely, and we stopped for a drink.
Lots of traffic in Calabogie! We were worried about the truck, taking up two lanes. I lovely end-of-summer day!
