Historical Site - Coteau du Lac

We went to visit relatives camping in Ontario on Saturday for the day, it was a beautiful day, but relatively humid, all in all a great day. I was hoping to do some time lapse photography with water on the lake and clouds in the sky, but their site was not the usual one. On the way home, with the sun descending in the sky I am always looking for photo ops, I saw a sign for a historical site at Coteau du Lac and followed it to the site. It turns out it was the very first lock canal on the St. Lawrence river and the defences and buildings supporting it. Most of the original buildings are only some stones in the ground forming the building foundation, and there were a couple of cannons.
