Nine of us took advantage of the slightly warmer weather to explore Mill Bay Nature Park. We covered about 9 Km including our foray down to Whiskey Point. Map and photos below. -- DeNNis.
|Parked in the lot at Mill Bay Park (top left). Walked directly down to Whiskey Point where we spent some time enjoying the scenery,, then back to Mill Bay Nature Park to explore until it was time to head for Tim Horton's and our coffee.
|Back up the fairly steep hill which we just drove down to get
to Mill Bay Park.
|A nicely finished driveway
marker on Whiskey Pt Rd.
|A well stacked bunch of firewood which he probably won't be
using in the near future - makes a nice driveway border, though.
|Looking back up Whiskey Point Road..

for an odd design.
