Fall Reflections

As we drove around Central Ontario searching for colours, we stopped by the Rosseeau River. We had bad Mid-Day light but somehow made this picture work! We would have loved to be here at 5PM as there is a spectacular falls across the road and West facing. Oh well.

Rosseau is a community in the District of Parry Sound, Canada. It is situated on the north shore of Lake Rosseau, a popular vacationing area. It is one of the ends of the Rosseau-Nipissing Road, which stretches all the way up to Lake Nipissing near North Bay, Ontario. An Ontario Historical Plaque was erected by the province to commemorate the Rosseau-Nipissing Road’s role in Ontario’s heritage.

Rosseau was formerly an incorporated  village ,which was amalgamated into Seguin Township on January 1, 1998.

The town shops are mostly arts and crafts shops with a few exceptions. One of them is famous Rosseau General Store, which has stood since the late 19th century. The town has a marina and public beach area that has undergone renovations including new boat launches and large docks, a pavilion and public washrooms. The town also has a nice restaurant, which is known as Crossroads, and an upscale cafe called Beaners. There are many shops, including Mountain Boy Bait and Tackle and Teensy Weenie Bikini. Rosseau is a tourist area, with many people visiting in the summer months to enjoy the scenery, shop for arts and crafts, or stop at the historic buildings. The town also hosts summer farmers markets and the Rosseau Fall Fair in late August, when people from all over Ontario
