For the final chapter in our summer series with Naturally L&A, Heidi and I set our sights to the northern portion of the county for a highly anticipated escape to The Addington Highlands. There, we would spend three days exploring the splendid scenery of Bon Echo Provincial Park. From hiking, kayaking and scenic boat tours to delicious local food and beyond - get ready for our biggest Lennox & Addington adventure yet!
When the calendar turns to September, prime cycling season arrives here in South Eastern Ontario. The days are usually a bit cooler and there is less humidity than earlier in the summer, making conditions just right to hop on your bike and enjoy a ride.
Lennox & Addington offers some of the best road cycling routes in the province. Our County roads are in terrific shape, and many are equipped with extended paved shoulders that provide added safety to riders.
Kristin Maloney recently enjoyed The Book of Dreams, the new novel by Nina George, the bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop and The Little French Bistro. This is "a fascinating new novel that explores the thresholds between life and death." Here is Kristin's review:

As the doors close on another summer, I look back and am grateful for another successful season at the Allan Macpherson House. August flew by, highlighted by Driftwood Theatre, Paper Making and an end of summer Ice Cream Social. Thank you to all of the guests, new faces and regulars, who made a trip to the Macpherson House a part of your summer story. Although afternoons at our beautiful historical home are over for the year, the new season of programming at the Museum is just about to kick off!

Andree Duval, Relief Librarian, recently enjoyed reading Home for Erring and Outcast Girls by Julie Kibler, a novel of historical fiction that is loosely based on a true story. Here is her review:
If you enjoy the outdoors, Lennox & Addington is a great place to be. There are many trails to hike or ride, and nearly countless lakes and rivers to explore.
Growing up I spent a lot of time at my grandparents' cottage on Beaver Lake. Most every day I could be found either in my Pop's old fishing boat, or paddling along the shoreline in a canoe.
Fast forward twenty-plus years and, despite my childhood love of being out on the water, I rarely had the opportunity to do so. Life is busy and time flies.
