E lives in Woodlawn, Ontario, but a sign as you pass through says ‘Welcome to Charlotte Bay’ so I am somewhat confused as to how one would address an envelope. I shall find out when I send a Christmas card. Regardless, imagine waking up to this sight every day!
The mountains in the distance are the Gatineau. Charlotte Bay is actually part of a spit. The beach was all but deserted on this early morning visit, but is usually well populated during the vacation season. The village itself reminded me of Kettle Point – a haven for cottagers, interspersed with year round residences.
On Tuesday we ventured forth yet again. In the village of Pakenham, we stopped at this stunning bridge. It is the only five span bridge remaining in all of North America. Below are two plaques that provide visitors with a brief history:
It was a beautiful spot and M, E and I enjoyed stretching our legs and taking photos! Apparently there is a severe undertow at the base of the falls and several signs warned potential swimmers of the danger!
