Aside from being a great prime minister, William Lyon Mackenzie King was quite a character, and creating these ruins on his land would have spoken to that. A Scots Presbyterian who had a fascination with spiritualism, King's gift to the country is a welcome place to visit. Here we have some more shots from around the Abbey. It's an inspiring spot- I have a passage stashed away where I've written a couple of very bad people taking another bad person up from the lake, along the path, and here to the abbey... and having him meet a bad end late in the night. Something that will at some point turn up in a book.
We started back towards Moorside.
Along the way there were more bits and pieces of old stonework, likely from the first Centre Block that he would have acquired, resting in various spots.
A different perspective of Moorside here, along with the outlying structure that is the carriage house and garage.
The path led to this spot. Moorside was off to the left, while the parking lot was down the path to the right.
Here we have a front view of the carriage house and garage.
And I leave off with two final views of Moorside. Tomorrow we'll be looking at another spot in the Gatineau Hills.
