Beveridge Locks – Rideau/Tay River
Beautiful summer day! We headed out to Beveridge Locks where they have a one way 2 km trail, so that was 4 k altogether then we did a bit of walking around for a total of about 5 km. Locks are terrific places to go and hang around, there was lots of traffic along the canal. They have washrooms! We also had our chairs and sat for a little while in the shade. While we were there we came across a group of canoers. I spoke with one of them and discovered they were a group of artists from all over Canada on a canoe journey from Kingston to Ottawa. Once in Ottawa they will be showing their work which I believe may have been produced along the 200 km canoe journey. The canoe event is called Channel Surf and described as a collaborative anarchive performance 🙂 Click Here for More Info Their exhibition will be on June 27th at Gallery 101 in Ottawa. I love the stuff we are running into on our wee jaunts about the country side. Today’s wildlife consisted of a bird that I have no idea what type it is (the kind that they make tall roosting platforms for) (it’s an Osprey)!!! It was a Mom & Dad and possibly there were chicks in the nest. Quite spectacular, I did attempt to film. Others stars of today;s walk included many frogs, a chubby snake and a host of wild flowers!
