Dwight and Algonquin Provincial Park – 22 September 2015

Leave a comment

Whilst were at Huntsville, we took a trip east towards Algonquin Park, stopping off at Dwight in both directions.

We stopped at Dwight, heading down to the shore of the Lake of Bays, at the aptly named Dwight Bay.

There was a short jetty with a canopy at the end, whilst close by Dwight Beach Road, there was a seating area with two red chair.

Heading back up to the Highway 60, we stopped to pick up lunch, before heading into Algonquin Provincial Park. We parked up at the south west end of Tea Lake by the dam which controls the flow into the Oxtongue River to eat our lunch and have a look around.

Whilst we were there, a heron flew past and landed in a tree. Posing for a while to allow several pictures to be taken, it finally stretched its wings and flew off into the trees.

Heading back to Huntsville, we stopped at Dwight again, this time to investigate the Trading Post and Fudge Factory. Unfortunately, the fudge factory was closed.

This day trip into Algonquin Provincial Park, has given us the inclination to base a several days of our next holiday to Ontario nearby to visit more of the the lakes, rivers and sights.
