Oak Ridges scenes

There were Cedar Waxwings gleaning in the Creek Willows, Mallards showing off their orange feet, a Kingbird parking itself on a 'No Parking' sign, a fisherman pondering his luck, and a curious chipmunk.   And there was time to explore the ancient foundations of the Bond Lake Hotel which was built in1834 and featured 20 rooms, a grand ballroom and other buildings.   Bond Lake itself was once described by an admirer from another century as: "One of the most beautiful sheets of water in Ontario".
