Perth, no time to dally!

June 18, 2012

Smith Falls disappeared behind me.  I arrived in Perth very early I had no time to explore because I had to get to Belleville via Marmora, Stirling and Trenton. I took Hwy 43 to Perth.

Yes another sign! Perth!

As I was taking a picture of the Perth sign I turned on the road that crossed a railroad track and there was this cemetery.  I couldn’t resist so I took some pictures.  The name of the cemetery I do not know but it is right there along the highway and across from a very serious industrial plant.  Click on the photo and it will get bigger (hit your back button to return to the blog).  If you look closely at the photo you can see the tall spires of the plant.

The cemetery by the sign and highway

The Last Duel in Canada was a very big deal in 1833:  http://www.town.perth.on.ca/siteengine/activepage.asp?PageID=91

Another cemetery in Perth - The Old Burying Ground:

The Old Burying Ground, Perth

Perth’s clock tower in the downtown area.  I can see that Perth would have been a great town to explore.  It was quite charming.

Photo doesn’t do Perth justice
