Canadian Cottaging, the 'County' & Montreal

If your heart and soul cries out for forests and lakes and GREEN as mine does then I hope you’ll enjoy these pix from my recent Ontario, Canada trip with a side trip by train to Montréal. We also spent time near Belleville, Ontario (where i grew up) in Prince Edward County on my 54th birthday to take in the galleries and wineries that sprouted up after I left Canada for California.
