Today my wife and I did something we haven't done in a long long time. Hiked alone (meaning no kids). It was... well... quiet, and we both enjoyed it tremendously.
We decided to change our original plan to hike The Wolf trail and instead settled for the Lauriault Trail through the Mackenzie King Estate. Surprisingly I had not yet hiked this trail.
First we hit The Abbey.
Then we relaxed by the waterfall.
From there we hiked over to the bench overlooking the Ottawa River and had some lunch and a refreshing beverage. One of us even had a short nap.
Ahhh, definitely something we'll have to indulge in again. And soon.
