Bronte Creek Provincial Park

The Park was originally a very large farm, and here's the house.

 Well, this is ridiculous!  This day at the Bronte Creek Provincial Park in Oakville was weeks ago (September 6th), and I still hadn't gotten 'round to writing about it.  

As our months here in Canada have nearly elapsed, making myself finish things online is more of a challenge.  So I'll just make some quickie comments here and there (for posterity - and when I get even more absentminded than I already am, and need help remembering the names of things in the photos.), and go ahead and post this too.    

This fantastic barn has the top two levels set up as one big play area for kids.

The bottom level of the barn is where the goats live.

Handsome chickens

Lots of fun in the kid's play area.

Elsewhere in the park are lots and lots of picnic shelters, which looked kinda' strange to me - like they were designed back in the early 80's?

Velcro makes excellent ball players of us all.

This incredible tree is over 300 years old!

I would love to say we built this; but we merely found it and stopped to enjoy it for awhile.

There was quite an apple orchard to wander through.  Tasty apples.

Lots of woods to wander through as well.  We spent the better part of the  day there, but didn't cover a third of what was there.

Back in Bronte itself, heading towards the Marina area.

We noticed a lot of fish flipping up out of the water.  It turned out to be Salmon heading upriver to spawn!
