    I'm definitely going to have a look at that soon. I might head out tomorrow for some more sights. Not sure where but there's some interesting battlefield stuff just over the border in NY State.

    Hey so I've been looking into this book that PP mentioned and came across these:

    http://www.atlasobscura.com/things-to-do/ontario

    Might be helpful for exploring or give you ideas.

    Thanks for those. The google map is good but I'm wondering what there must be further north. The other link seems very Toronto centric.

    That thing on the left is a speaker station...the lights change in time to the music/genre

    Yesterday was a great day for riding. I couldn't stop yesterday I even went for a evening run down to Toronto Ports.
    Starting to explore some of the spots suggested by PrivatePilot from that book.

    The first picture was from Sun Oct 1 (Thomas Foster Memorial),
    the second from Oct 3rd (The Sharon Temple).

    Awesome, glad you're getting out and about. Was the Thomas Foster building open, and were you able to look inside? It was closed when I was there so I could only look from the street. It was one of the more interesting ones, although it looks oddly out of place out there in the middle of nowhere, but that's what the book is all about.

    Yes both places I was able to get inside and peek around. May post interior shots when I pull the photos from the camera.
    Oddly enough at both locations I bumped into 2 different bands, one just wrapped up a performance and the other was shooting a music video (at Sharon Temple). Made the trips a little more interesting.

    the thomas foster memorial is cool, I was told the entire place is built without wood, all out of stone, mostly marble, and concrete, we used it as King Carlo's place in a tv movie about 5 years ago....

    Ripped down to Port Burwell today to see the HMCS Ojibwa submarine.


    Also randomly stopped by this pet cemetary. Damn this must have cost a pretty penny!

    Visited the sub about 3 years ago while I was out that way as part of a horse haul - spent the night in town before picking up the horses the next morning and I took the opportunity to check it out. Definitely worth the visit.

    yeah it was pretty neat! the fence around it makes it a big unsightly for photos if you're trying to capture the whole thing, but the fact that its even there in the first place is pretty sweet. part of highway 52 was also pretty decent as well. i wasn't sure what the most scenic route from toronto would be.

    Spent a few days exploring last week.Checked out the Deifenbunker outside Ottawa.Very much worth the time especially if you are a boomer.The fall colours in Algonquin were really good.But the highlite of the trip was going to see Screaming Heads near Burkes Falls.Amazing place! Got the t-shirt in the Deifenbunker.

    Here are some shots from the inside of the Foster Memorial, hopefully this doesn't spoil it for anyone wanting to go there.
