Smith Falls and Parry Sound, Ontario are two of our favorite small towns in Canada. The first photo was taken from our campsite in Smith Falls, right on the Rideau Canal. Parry Sound has a cruise ship which takes passengers around the 10,000 islands (give or take a few) in Georgian Bay. We took that cruise some years ago and were amazed by the number of little islands that had just one or two houses on them, pretty interesting houses at that.

Note the black squirrel. We saw several around this area although we had never seen them anywhere else.

These compost bins were in Algonquin Provincial Park, our next destination. The Ontario park system takes composting very seriously.

The last photo is of our traveling kitty cats. They've been traveling with us for the past four years. Nothing like a warm, purry, furry cat on a cold night!

The next and last blog of this fall trip will be consist of photos of our trip home. Then the next photos will be of Arkansas at Christmas -- which will be taken during our next trip beginning in two weeks.

Take care, Paula

The observation tower is in Parry Sound. You can see the Island Queen Cruise ship in this photo -- which finished her last trip of the year around the 10,000 islands this very afternoon. We missed it, but we'd done it before.

As you can see, the Canadian parks program is very big on composting.
