I loved sitting outside at night and looking in at our cottage.  It was such a cozy feel.  So elegant and safe feeling. A block from Lake Huron.  The stars would shine bright overhead.  Why in the world did this gorgeous house not get protected from being torn down??? How did this happen today?  I can’t help but think of how much work we dedicated each and every time we’re we up there to restoring, pouring our love into it..... for this.  What an empty feeling.  #southampton_on #sampton #southamptonbia #greybruce #brucepeninsula #southamptontownhall #potelginontario #chantryisland #marineheritagefestival #marineheritage #lakehuron #greatlakes #historicontario #discoverontario #brucemuseum #saugeenriver #historicsociety #southamptonwalkingtours #southamptonontario #southamptonon #southamptonartscentre

During the summer, if I am early enough on my way to work, I love to stop for some much-needed quiet time at the Long Island locks and cut stone dam (c. 1832). I'm feeling a bit melancholy with the approach of autumn, which means winter is around the corner and these summer pleasures are coming to an end.

These locks are part of the  historic 202 km Rideau Canal, which runs from the Ottawa River in downtown Ottawa to the St Lawrence River at the mouth of Lake Ontario in Kingston.

A sunny, crisp, autumn morning. Watched the Lock in action. The small one, who can’t sit still long enough to watch a TV show, watched in fascination until the process was complete. #realness #reallife #mindfulness #wellness #gratitude #FindYourJoy #entrepreneur #mompreneur #family #familyfun #qualitytime #qualitytimewithfamily #nurtureinnature #getoutside #historic #historicontario

@museumofnature The historic Canadian Museum of Nature in downtown Ottawa. Scroll through for pictures of the beautiful details and see below for a history of this stunning building. It should come as no surprise that I can't get enough of the earth gallery, full of dazzling and fascinating minerals, gems and stones produced by the earth over millenia.

The building itself was built at the turn of the 20th century. It was meant to be a tribute to Queen Victoria as she ended her 64 year reign in 1901. It was built from Canadian sandstone, most of which was hand-carved by about 300 Scottish stonemasons. After the parliament buildings were destroyed by fire, the headquarters of Canadian Parliament moved here while their buildings were being rebuilt. The National Art Gallery and the National Civilzation Museum were also housed here before they were moved to different locations.

A trip to Viamede at this time of the year often feels like you're on your own, private, paparazzi-free getaway. If relaxing with only the occasional loon-call to interrupt your reverie is your style, you'll want to check out The Golden Getaway package (#linkinprofile).

The oldest home in the Rockcliffe neighbourhood, Crichton Lodge built circa 1880, is the official residence of the Norwegian ambassador. Despite some later additions, the Lodge remains a Gothic Revival villa. It has been designated a Heritage building under the Ontario Heritage Act.

#SummerStories - we're not quite ready to let go of summer yet, so we're going to relive some of the highlights over the next week or so. Here's a fun one:
.
One blazing day in July, a neighbor came and yelled at us because our pigs were rooting around in her garden (details may be exaggerated for dramatic effect).
.
The Viamede pig rescue team (yes, we have one) jumped into action and corralled the pigs into their pen. Later that evening, Ben and the neighbor shared a bottle of wine, talked fishing, and all was right in the world again.

The whimsical and charming Martello Alley hidden in an alley between heritage buildings in lovely and historic  Kingston, Ontario.

Kingston was originally founded as a fort in 1673 and settled by British Loyalists fleeing America in the 1700's. Called the "Limestone City" for its grand heritage buildings built of local limestone, it is located where the St Lawrence Seaway begins at Lake Ontario and the south end of the historic Rideau Canal. Also known for the Bellevue House (home to Canada's first Prime Minister), Fort Henry (est. during War of 1812) and the historic Kingston Penitentiary (opened in 1835). #oldstoneaffair #loveoldstone #heritagehomesontario

More beautiful heritage homes from a summertime stroll through the lovely Kingston, Ontario. ...Kingston was originally founded as a fort in 1673 (you can still visit Fort Frontenac), settled by British Loyalists fleeing America in the 1700's, and for a short time was the capital of the United Province of Canada until 1844. City Hall was built in the 1840's after a fire destroyed most of downtown and they needed a proper "Capital" building.

Sourcing 8x8 solid timbers at the most beautiful lumberyard in Ontario. The ensemble of historic structures, just purchased by a new owner, are being vacated by Rona and their fate is still unknown.  I hope they have the foresight to save some of these beauties as a reminder of the regions logging history. .

Our Friday Firehall this week is the third firehall built in Niagara. It was located on Queen Street and built in 1910. Before this firehall was built, the fire department operated out of the Courthouse. The photo feature a 1942 Ford and a 1924 International.  Photo: circa 1945

Diversity is a word that gets proudly thrown around a lot by Canadians. Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal all claim to be diverse in their growing populations. But none hold a candle to the insane cultural ecosystem that is Toronto. No other neighbourhood encompasses this spirit more than the eclectic  Kensington Market. Next time you’re in Toronto, pay it a visit, and peer into the brilliant future of the human race. #torontolife

Pretty Perth! Heritage Perth, Ontario was settled in 1816. Many of the early settlers were Scottish immigrants and their stonemasonry can be seen throughout the community and  across the Ottawa Valley. Perth was the main centre for military,  government and law for many years in Lanark County and the Ottawa Valley until 'Bytown', now Ottawa, became the capital. #oldstoneaffair #loveoldstone #historicontario #visitperthontario
Pretty Perth! Heritage Perth, Ontario was settled in 1816. Many of the early settlers were Scottish immigrants and their stonemasonry can be seen throughout the community and across the Ottawa Valley. Perth was the main centre for military, government and law for many years in Lanark County and the Ottawa Valley until 'Bytown', now Ottawa, became the capital. #oldstoneaffair  #loveoldstone  #historicontario  #visitperthontario

T.H.&B. Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo - Abandoned Rail Line photo take May2018

This is what I love about photography. Spotted this cool abandoned rail bridge across a field from the road. Part one was finding access point, part two taking the photos and editing, part three searching to learn about it origins and learning about local history in the process.

Below are my findings:

T.H.&B. - Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo Rail-line, 1884 - 1988/89, Ran a loop from Waterford up to brantford, Over to Hamilton, Down to Smithville where it branched through Port Davidson down to Port Maitland,the other branch down to Port Colbourne. Port Davidson line started in 1915. Exact time of bridge construction I couldn't find but likely in and around 1915. Feel free to let know otherwise.

All rails are now removed from this length making a stone filled pathway.

Do you know the story of Viamede Resort?
.
The original building was built in 1885, but burned down in 1907. The new Viamede was built in its place, featuring modern comforts like electric light and running water (we still have these today, plus a few more updates).
