The Old Mill @ Bedford Mills

Bedford Mills is a very quaint, pretty place. It's just off the beaten track, not too far from Newboro or Westport.

More importantly, Frontenac Provincial Park owns a strip of land, a portage, that allows access from the Rideau system to Devil Lake. This allows a canoe trip to the northern border of Frontenac Provincial Park.

This was the missing link. My gratitude to those who had the foresight to obtain this very, strategic portage.

Jacqui & I started our 2011 camping season, back on the Feb, 5, 2011 at Mew Lake Campground, in Algonquin Park. It was the first time in decades that either of us had camped, albeit in the Santa Fe, winter notwithstanding.

Recently we purchased a tent From Mountain Equipment Co-op in Ottawa. So next week we will hike into Frontenac and do an overnighter in the tent ... sleeping bags, etc. I better get a compass and a map.I'll call the park and get some advice about that.

I need to get in shape, exercise a little more.
Stay tuned, Jacqui will be here soon.
