Watery Wednesday - Bellville Ontario

Posted by Lorac Wednesday, 16 December 2009

Watery Wednesday
I spent many days traveling for the last company I worked for. One trip I made several times a year was over to Bellville, Ontario. Bellville is right on Lake Ontario and they have an amazing water front.
Belleville is located at the mouth of the Moira River on the  Bay of Quinte (Part of Lake Ontario) in southeastern Ontario. They have done a lot of work at the water front and there is a great walk way for a couple of miles with lots of parkland and wildlife to see. Sir McKenzie Bowell, Canada's 5th Prime Minister was born here. This town turns out great hockey players too! The Hulls, Bobby, Bret and Dennis were all from Bellville.This is where Avril Lavigne was born and grew up in nearby Napanee and many other talented people both in sports and the arts.



Ontario is well known for it's Lime Stone and it is well used here throughout the park for retaining walls into the water and to ensure proper embankment.areas.



Great gardens are seen all along the waterfront.


I love the colour of these!


 Plenty of places to sit and gaze at the water.



  There is lots of wildlife to be seen. Here out on the bay is a Blue Heron and a few ducks  waiting on their dinner.



Along the pathway the is a huge plaque commemorating the rail road in Bellville. It was quite striking!

Lake Moira is fed by Moira River and is along Hwy 62 on the way to Madoc. This trip I was providing training in Madoc and caught this sunrise on the lake.



For many other beautiful posts form around the world go see Watery Wednesday!
