A short drive outside of Ottawa will bring you to a countryside town called Manotick. It’s a cute little riverside town that favours tourists and foodies alike with its craft shops and delicious restaurants.
A couple of weeks ago, we made the trip out on a warm and sunny Sunday to visit Watson’s Mill. It’s a gorgeous old stone building dating back to 1860 (as the sign above the entryway will tell you) that sits right on the river’s edge. It was once a thriving seed mill, but now it stands as a reminder of how the area established itself. I’m sure if I had my pick of the litter in terms of places I’d like to live in this country, Manotick would be right up near the top of my list.
Here is a short photo tour of the mill… I hope you enjoy!
