The gallery owner even painted her floor. I told her it looked like a Jackson Pollock!

We stopped in at this art gallery in Gananoque where the very talented owner/artist painted a mural on the outside wall. Here is a small piece of it.

Beside taking picture of nature, I also enjoy taking what I call fun and humorous pictures. Today I will start showing some of these that I took along the waterway. Enjoy!

Trent-Severn Waterway

Healey Falls is a not a big waterfall. It has been partially compromised by the construction of a dam right across the top of the falls. It is still, however, a great place to visit. The Trent River falls probably 30-60 feet, not in one large plunge, but in a rugged series of wide steps. The limestone is thinly bedded yielding hundreds of little steps. Here are some gulls having some fun on one of the steps.
