|Following the Butter Tart Trail.......|
We picked four places to check out on our journey, and here they are.
Luther Marsh first, because we knew we'd probably spend the most time there birding. It's a big area and we enjoyed our time there. We saw a few different bird species and are looking forward to a return visit in the Fall when the bugs are gone.
|We were thrilled to see a Loon.|
|Taking advantage of the "Look-Out" platform.|
|It was a lovely view!|
|These "bugs" I like.|
|Cows were in the field across the road.|
Our second stop was "Misty Meadows" country market where we picked up some fresh corn, peaches, fresh baked peach pie, homemade pickles and of course butter-tarts!
|Misty Meadows Country Market, lots of homemade goodness in that building.|
|We even got a tour of the barn.|
|The young ones liked to nibble on my fingers.|
|Thanks for the milk products guys!|
|You could spend hours here looking at all the stuff for sale.|
We were getting hungry by this time and decided to have a late lunch/early dinner before heading back home. Rob located a Pizza Delight in Fergus. Most of them in Ontario have closed, which is to bad, I love their pizza. You could only get food to go, so we ate at a nearby park.
|I wish all the locations in Ontario weren't closing.|
|Love their pizza!|
|Time for butter tarts!|
Footnote: We had an old brochure about the The Butter Trail, and Luther Marsh and Damascus Emporium are not listed on the latest version of the trail, which is now a more direct route with 16 stops. Lucky for us we did have the old brochure, we found a great new place to go birding and I got a great deal on planter!
