Sunday Excursion Part II - Watson's Mill, Manotick

This was our second stop after Sun -Tech Greenhouses (see previous post) and it was the perfect choice.  I was surprised that we had not heard much of the mill before - it's a beautiful building in a beautiful setting and well worth the visit.

We'd learned things here too.  Sunday's are the best time to visit - (1) the mill is operated between 1:00 and 3:30 every Sunday afternoon; (2) the mill is child friendly and has a variety of hands-on exhibits; (3) the mill will be part of Doors Open Ottawa on June 5th and 6th the same dates as Dickinson Days, the annual Manotick festival; and (4) one can buy duck feed - $1 for a decent sized bag - and feed the ducks off the bridge outside.  A number of people were also fishing.
