We're Bonded Now
Later, as I admired a lovingly cared for home built in "locally made brick in the third quarter of the nineteenth century" a pleasant gentleman popped out of his door. I introduced myself as an "old house nut" and he engaged us in a lively discussion about Lindsay's history and its old house heritage. A visit to Bond Street was also among his many recommendations for enjoying this loveliest of Ontario towns.
This fellow's neighbourhood, the Mill Street area, is the oldest part of town. Later we followed his instructions to the mill ruin site - which we will revisit in summer, to enjoy the parkland bordering the Scugog River - and more walks along more old residential streets. Yesterday was bright and beautiful, but appallingly cold.
More posts about Lindsay are sure to follow. Did I mention that it was my new favourite town?
