The Roofs at the Old Mill

I go quite often to the Humber River Valley to take photos – it’s full of flora and fauna, and the path by river is well-cared for and well-travelled. I usually get to it by public transit, because the Old Mill station is practically on top of it. To get to the valley itself, you walk down past the Old Mill, which was once a mill (hence the name, obviously), and is now a hotel. It has been built up in a sort of quasi-Tudor style – all half-timbered construction and creamy plaster. It’s very popular for weddings, although the charm sometimes veers sharply into twee – don’t get me started on the “Tea Shoppe”. If you can avoid the Tea Shoppe, however, it is a very handsome set of buildings. The roofs of the various sections lined up just so as I was walking down the road. If you look very closely, you might be able to spot a couple of birds perching on the weathervane on the right-hand side.
