Nearly seven years ago we “built our nest” in beautiful Almonte, Ontario – town with a rich history of former (and current) residents including the inventor of basketball; Dr. James Naismith.
Outside of the attraction of the friendly atmosphere and its historic qualities, we chose Almonte and Mississippi Mills also for the wonderful outdoor spaces and opportunities that abound to connect with nature.
One such location that is not far from our flagship store on Mill Street is the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area. In addition to the wonderful birding opportunities around the town of Almonte, the Mill of Kintail offers that and so much more just minutes from our small town.
Last week, Bob took a drive to this historic site, had a chance to head out on the trails and look for some warblers and chat with some of the staff of this wonderful site.
