Port Perry, Ontario, Canada

Recently, on our way home from a stay in Lindsay, Ontario, my husband and I made a couple of stops. We turned off the highway into Port Perry, where we stretched our legs and walked along the waterfront of Lake Scugog.

Some history on the steamboat and traffic on Lake Scugog in earlier days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Woodman was one of many steamboats on the waters.

and storefronts, similar to those in Lindsay (previous post)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The founder of Chiropractic, Daniel David Palmer, was a native of Port Perry. This statue stands in the park by the waterfront.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m a knitter and noticed the sign for the yarn shop,  Never Enough Wool, on Water Street,  and so we had to stop there and look around. Since I had just bought a new coat, I needed some yarn to make mittens. The shop had a good variety of yarn including alpaca yarn that’s said to be very warm. I’ll soon know.

Also we had personable service by owner and coworker.  Thanks, Carol.
