Merrickville Road Trip - Notes

Merrickville, Ontario
October 8-10, 2017

Highways taken : 401, 35 and 117
At the Merrickville area took hiways 28, 6, 15
Playlist that accompanied us : Apo Hiking Society, Boyfriends, Marc Anthony, Carly Simon

Places we passed by :
The Marmora Sculpture Garden. Closed.
Norwood, Perth and Smith Falls. Driver did not make any stop. It was a cloudy and grey day which was not helping at all to take fall colors photos.

Food Places We Tried :
Cha Tea upon arrival, after check-in.
Kochi Sushi in Brockville. All you can eat sushi, but not that great.
Baldachin Inn (take out steak) - the hubby swears it will be the standard of his steak now.
Coffee Bean - open on thanksgiving day. Coffee and muffin to while away the time.
Mainstreet Family Restaurant - breakfast on last day. Ordered Hungry Man and Western omelet.

Movies we watched (at the B&B) :
Barefoot in the Park (Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, 1967)
Documentary on the Royal Family
Security (Antonio Banderas, 2017)

It was a rainy trip but managed to take a couple of barn photos to start my Barn Photo Project.

To keep in mind next time - Thanksgiving weekend is not the best time to visit Ontario places. Most restaurants and attractions are closed (Brockville). Some shops in Merrickville however were open in the afternoon.
