Long Sault Parkway – a surprise .. this was not where we were heading, but it is where we ended up.. The Long Sault Parkway is a series of 11 island that were created from high points of land after the flooding of the St. Lawrence river during the construction of the Seaway in 1950’s. for more info. on the Long Sault Parkway visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Sault_Parkway
We drove the whole 10.1 kilometers (6.3 miles) then continued on to Preston and highway 416 to get back to Ottawa. We couldn’t have had a better day for a drive. It was hot, but walking along pathways we found that took us along the banks of the St. Lawrence, offered up wonderful breezes off the water. We saw lots of water =^_^= Stopped at more than one beach!
Being a “vacation” day, we treated ourselves to hot fries from a chip truck, they also served up the most wonderful hamburgers.. and yes, we indulged.. DELICIOUS… Dessert – salted caramel ice capp.!!!! yes.. its true !!!!!! (yes from Tim Hortons)
You’re happy, I’m happy. Have the mindset of “good for you, good for me”. Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.Perfect Liberty 2021.7

Looks like a beautiful day and the meal sounds delicious!
it was great being out, and sharing a meal I didn’t have to cook, double yummy
Looks cool and refreshing, just like the Niagara
being by the water, is refreshing… certainly when temperatures are climbing.. to the high 80’s today we may reach into the 90’s… stay cool… !!
Hamburgers and chips – scrumptious
they were delicious!
Wonderful: beaches, the mighty St-Laurence, sunshine, good food, above all friendship.

Today is our adventure day. A drive into the mountains and a bike ride along a scenic back road.
