I visited Lindsay, Ontario for a couple of days for a family event and took the opportunity to take a few photos. The weather was perfect with warm temperatures and no chance of rain.
On the evening of my arrival, I took a short walk around town. The town was typical of any small Ontario community. But the beautiful parkland along the Scugog River that bisects the town was a feature that I couldn't resist. I walked through this parkland until the light was fading and it was time for dinner.
I headed to the Ken Reid Conservation Area the following morning. This is located a short drive north of town and at the southern end of Sturgeon Lake. It features a boardwalk through a marsh, lakefront views, and several woodland trails. The proximity of this natural area was one reason why I chose a hotel in Lindsay rather than elsewhere.
Later that day I went to Hollowbrook Highlands. This is a farm that's been converted to an event space and is about a half-hour drive southeast of Lindsay. It's a beautiful rustic area with a large barn, several smaller buildings, and a few animals. I only had a few minutes for photography but managed to find several photo opportunities.
The next morning it was time to drive back to Ottawa. I only had a couple of days away from home, but I don't think I could have asked for a more enjoyable trip.
