Video taken around the centre of Bobcaygeon, Ontario, Canada. The town has a population of a little over 3,500 but the numbers swell in the summer as people from areas like Toronto escape to the Kawartha Lakes region. The most important aspect of Bobcaygeon, other than the famous Kawartha Dairy, is the boat locks that are a part of the Trent Canal. The locks connect Sturgeon Lake in the west to Pigeon Lake in the east. Bobcaygeon was the site of the first locks ever built in the Trent system, dating back to 1832. The town is located about an hour and a half from the Greater Toronto Area, to the northeast. The closest major centres are Lindsay and Peterborough.

A POV drive westbound on Dundas Street in London, Ontario, Canada. Starting at the Western Fairgrounds (now dubbed the Fairgrounds District - fancy name but still just a decrepit part of the city). London, Ontario is the county seat of Middlesex County and has a population around 370,000. London is located nearly equidistant from Toronto, Detroit and Cleveland (as the crow flies). Near the end, across from the Bell Building is Budweiser Gardens, home of the London Knights. If you notice the sign at that intersection as I turn right, apparently right turns aren't allowed. I grew up in the city but haven't been around for a while. You used to have to turn here in order to catch Riverside Drive out of downtown, going west to Byron.

HD video of Letchworth State Park in Upstate New York. The park is located a little over an hour southeast of Buffalo and around 40 minutes due south from Rochester. Dubbed the 'Grand Canyon of the East', Letchworth is a long, thin park that covers both sides of the Genesee River. For more detailed info and great images, check out our article here: http://www.itsabouttravelling.com/letchworth-state-park/ Along the Genesee, within the State Park, there are three major waterfalls tucked in a canyon that is at times up to 550 feet from top to bottom. These are simply named Upper Falls, Middle Falls and Lower Falls. There are many more smaller and seasonal waterfalls throughout the park. There is ample camping available, along with cabins, inns and motels rooms. It should be noted that the campground is some eleven miles from the main waterfall attraction area. Downstream for the campground is Mt. Morris Dam, a water control dam that is rarely used to capacity. However, in 1972, the dam help back massive hurricane rainfall to save Rochester from flooding. The water was so high that the Hog's Back feature shown in the video was reduced to a thin island barely above the river. The train trestle shown just upstream from Upper Falls is the Portage Viaduct. This is a 140 year old iron rail bridge that is currently being replaced. There is an arguement whether the bridge should be dismantled once the new one is in place or if it should be converted to a pedestrian bridge.

Also known as Well's Falls and Van Nattas Falls. Located on Six Mile Creek in Ithaca, New York, this waterfall is dammed at the top with the ruins of an old hydroelectric plant along one side. Parking is available across the road at Mulholland Wildflower Preserve. After crossing the Giles Street Bridge, there is a short trail that leads to the base of the falls. Despite how peaceful Ithaca seems, there are signs at the parking lot warning of frequent car break-ins. This was evident by the broken auto glass in several spots on the ground. Six Mile Creek empties into southern end Cayuga Lake, the furthest east of New York's Finger Lakes.

Located just north of the Trans Canada Highway between North Bay and Mattawa, Ontario, Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park might be a bit of an overlooked gem on the Canadian Shield. Just north of the upper limits of the inconic Algonquin Provincial Park, Samuel de Champlain has it all, in a more compact form. Placed at the convergence of the Amable du Fond River and the Mattawa River, Champlain is a canoe buff's paradise with lots to offer on the mainland as well. Some rugged and peaceful hiking is offered on the Etienne set of trails. There are also shorter and easier to handle hiking opportunities within the park. Much of this video is taking along the History and Nature loop of the Etienne Trails.

Tofu is a great food for replacing protein and is a cheap alternative to eating meat. However, you don't just pull it out of the package and stick in the oven. Tofu comes packaged in a liquid that, if not drained, can really bring a bitter taste and not allow the tofu to suck up the flavour that it's being cooked with. First, you have to press the block of tofu, in order to drain as much of the fluid as possible. Second, you need to slice up the block of tofu into your desired shapes for cooking. i chose cubes but often people will cut tofu into little triangular pieces. Third, you need to dry fry the pieces of tofu, alone on a none stick pan. Here, you need to help the complete draining process along but further pressing the fluid out with a spatula. When the tofu is golden brown, it can be taken off the stove and marinated in whatever concoction you dream up.

Recollet Falls are located on the French River in the French River Provincial Park. The Falls are accessed via a 2km long trail that starts at the French River Visitor Centre just off highway 69 between Parry Sound and Sudbury in Ontario, Canada. The visitor centre is just the tip of this large provincial park that is mostly only accessible via canoe. The French River begins at Lake Nipissing and travels 110 km before emptying into Georgian Bay and the Great Lakes. Recollet Falls and the French River play significant roles in the early history of Canada. The drop at Recollet Falls is not overly high. However, the speed and volume of clear water smashing over is a must see. For more great photos and detailed info on Recollet Falls, take a look at our article: http://www.itsabouttravelling.com/recollet-falls-french-river/

On March 10, 2018, we videoed a driving tour through the town of Fergus, Ontario. Our route took us into town from the south via Highway 6 (Tower Street). Due to construction and the closure of the St. David Street bridge, across the Grand River, we continued on Tower Street before turning right on St. George St. and taking a left on St. David. We restarted the tour on St. Andrew Street, at the east end of downtown. We took that road west and to the outskirts of town, toward Elora. Fergus, Ontario is an unincorporated community in the township of Centre Wellington and Wellington County. The town has a rapidly growing population that has surpassed 21,000. Located on the Grand River, downstream from Belwood Lake and above the Elora Gorge, Fergus is just 18 kilometres north of the larger city of Guelph. We covered Guelph in an earlier video - see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW9mw2GlBog The town was settled in 1833 and was incorporated as a village in 1858. The name is in honour of one of the founders, Adam Fergusson. A haven of Scottish heritage, the town is home to the annual Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games, an event held each year in August, since 1946. Fergus is the birthplace of former NHL goaltender Ed Chadwick. Chadwick played for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins. It is also the birthplace to an Ironman Triathlon great, Lori Bowden.

A drive around Lindsay, Ontario, Canada on August 24, 2017. Video starts on Lindsay Street, going north and passing by downtown and Lock 33 of the Trent Severn Waterway before turning left on Wellington Street. From Wellington Street, we turn left on Victoria Avenue. After turning left on Russell Street, we turn left again on Lindsay Street before taking Kent Street all the way to highway 7. Lindsay, Ontario has a population over 20,000 and is the centre of the greater Kawartha Lakes which has a population of 75,000. Located 132 kilometres northeast of the centre of Toronto, Lindsay was established in 1831. The Scugog River runs through town, emptying a short distance north into Sturgeon Lake. The town is home to the Frost Campus of Sir Sanford Fleming College. It is also home to lock 33 in the Trent Severn Waterway connecting Sturgeon Lake to Scugog River and Lake Scugog. The lock is manually operated. Graduates of Fleming will be disappointed to see the boarded up front on Kent Street, the former location of the York Hotel. For a video of the locks, see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5-Pyq5qC3U
