Desboro Ontario Visited
by Gary McWilliams (aka Festival Nomad)
Have you ever taken a long “serendipity” drive in the country?
We have, and it’s a lot of fun.
That’s how we found the small community of Desboro.
It’s located on one of those long country roads, lined with farmers’ fields.
Like many rural communities, it caters to the surrounding area.
As we drove through Desboro, we stopped at their community centre and park.
It was early spring when we discover Desboro…
… so there wasn’t much happening in the park.
However, I could imagine on a warm summer day, with the parking lot full and sound of an umpire yelling “play ball“!
Or, in the fall at the Desboro Fall Fair, with the small of freshly made popcorn!
As we left the park, we passed the Faith Lutheran Church,
and then the Bluewater Feed Company.
As we turned the corner to leave Desboro, I noticed the Desboro Tavern. Later, when we got home, I found out that the tavern had been built in 1869.
It just shows you how these older rural communities, that dot the Ontario countryside, help make country living possible and enjoyable!
