Roast beef dinner and a campfire

So, I'm with a group of my male friends up at a beautiful cottage for the weekend located in between Smiths Falls and Kingston, Ontario. It was looking to be a nice day, and so 8 out of the 10 of us decided to go for a hike.

We went to the nearby Rock Dunder hiking trail. It's a very popular trail, and of course on a nice fall Saturday it was pretty busy.

We got there about 10:20am.

Out for a hike with the boys. 

Fall colors.

Beautiful view. 
Except, there was a lineup of people waiting to use this photo spot.

More fall colors.

The "cottage".

We cooked up a big prime rib roast for dinner, with yorkshire pudding and gravy and all the trimmings. It was delicious! 

Then, we went outside for a campfire and music. A couple of the guys are pretty good with the guitars, and another brought his keyboard. Turn your volume up...

A bit of a late night, but we all survived and the bacon and sausage and eggs are already being cooked. Another great annual weekend with my friends!

Good time of year to put a leaf blower on sale!

And in Canada, a good deal on a Hoover Bagless Vac...


  1. Beautiful, colorful leaf peeking opportunity! Love the header pic with the water! I'm going to pass this on to our family in Kingston.

    1. Yes, it is definitely a gorgeous time of year in this part of the country! I am sure your friends in Kingston would love to hike this trail if they are into hiking and seeing what the area has to offer.

    1. Thank you, they are beautiful for sure in this part of the country.

  3. He's a great singer and guitar player! Fun!

  4. It sounds like you are having a great time. Im sure Ruth is enjoying her time as well and we look forward to an update when you get home.

    1. Kevin had a great time with the guys, they always do when they get together. I had a good time as well but we didn't really do much that was blog worthy.

  5. That is a beautiful area of Ontario especially in the fall. Sounds like more fun times.

    1. It is really nice up here. I am surprised that you don't make a trip up to this area during your summers in Ontario.


We love hearing from you! Please take the time to leave a comment...
