Two posts in one day, I’m on a roll!

Jen and I had planned to go canoeing yesterday but the winds were looking a bit high but it was just too nice of a day to waste.   We grabbed the cameras and headed out to the Nickolson’s Locks and Merrickville for the day.   We were rewarded big time!!!   Can’t wait to see Jen’s work as she was playing with her macro lens, maybe she will give me a few pics to post???  hint hint 🙂

Upper Nicholson’s with the unique swing bridge in the middle of the lock.

Fast running water at the dam.

The Andrewsville Bridge was apparently saved from the wrecking ball!

Spotted an Osprey nest with a chick inside.  At the extreme end of my lens and cropped so apologies for the blurriness.  Someday when I’m rich and famous I need a BIG BIG BIG bird lens!  lol

My pretty partner!!!

I’m a sucker for the cranks haha

Someday I will have a boat on the Rideau!
We then moved down to Merrickville to the ruins.

Tardis Graveyard?
