Elora, ON

After we left the West Montrose covered bridge, we headed to Elora. Gord and I haven't been there since 2002.

We walked over a bridge and here was our view of the Elora Mill Inn, an old mill which is now a restaurant and inn.

Here's Gord.

We walked to the Elora Mill Inn.

Here's the Elora Gorge Falls (also known as Tooth of Time) next to the Inn.

Not so calmed here.

We had a drink on the patio at the Inn (you can see it on the picture above). In the next picture, we're on the patio looking up at where the last picture was taken.

We walked along Grand River, following a path on the other side of the water across the Inn.

Here are the ruins of the Kiddie Kar Factory.

It was fun to walk through the woods along the path.

Here's how high we were ... can you see the people swimming in the water in the middle?

There are three hiking paths ... we did the yellow and the green.

We went down through the Hole in the Rock.

Heading back up, it looked like a bum!

We headed back along the trails to get to our car. One last trek was down to the water's edge. After seeing people swimming, inner tubing and kayaking, I couldn't resist walking into the water.

The water felt good but it was really rocky.

Is that the most gorgeous hike ever or what? I love exploring old ruins.

I used to live across the bridge from the "Tooth of Time". They took the bridge down recently.

I want to move back to Elora - I love it there.

Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby!
