It's great when you can take a unique vacation in your own country and province. This is especially true when you live in Ontario with its many lakes and scenic wilderness.
We stayed at Haliburton Heights on Lake Kashagawigamog about 10 miles from Haliburton. The surrounding forest was overwhelming with its reds, yellows, oranges and greens. October is the best month to catch Ontario in its finest colours.
Many of the businesses in Haliburton had fall displays in front their of their stores. We were fortunate to get these on video tape.
On October the fifteenth, we went to Minden where we talked to Sharon Lawrence about her husband's (RD Lawrence) work as a naturalist and author. Their museum has many pictures of the wild animals they helped and the causes they fought for.
One of our vacation highlights was a mural by Robert Van Nood. You really have to see it on Minden's beer store wall to appreciate it fully. Part of it is reproduced below:
We plan to check out the Haliburton Museum and art gallery, this week.
The Great White North is for everybody to enjoy not just Canadians.
