Rail Yard Wake Park

We took my niece and nephew to Rail Yard Wake Park two weekends in a row . They are located in Mount Albert, Ontario. The first visit we enjoyed the Aqua Park. My nephew wanted to try the wake boarding, unfortunately, they were booked that day. We went back Saturday and he took a 1/2 hour lesson. The staff did a great job, before his time was up he was going end to end. He is going back in for another lesson, it looks like he will be wanting his own wake board in the future!. Here are a few pics of more seasoned boarders tearing it up in Mount Albert.

Tyrone Mills Products

This will be the last post on Tyrone Mills. I could not resist buying some of their products. This is what I bought minus the old fashioned doughnuts and sourdough bread that is now long gone! Both were so good and fresh!


The Apple Spice Muffin Mix was only $11.00 Canadian for a 2.5 Kg bag, with simple ingredients that I did not need a dictionary to find out what was in it! All I have to do is add water. I can’t wait to bake some up!

The organic coconut flour was only $5.75 for a 1.25 kg bag. Where are you going to get organic for that price? Gluten and grain free flour! I just found a site that has hundreds of recipes for it too. You can find them at Coconut Mama.

The Cake and Pastry flour was $4.95 for a 5.5 kg bag.

We can’t wait to try the Caramelized Onion Chutney. I bet it will be good.

It is worth driving out of your way to visit Tyrone Mills. I am sure we will be going back to buy some gifts for Christmas. In the meantime you can see what they have to offer visit their website here.

More About Tyrone Mills

Quote from their site:

This is a traditional water-powered mill, built in 1846. It serves as a historical attraction with scenic views, local products and warm atmosphere.

The Tyrone Mills Limited has been owned and operated by Robert Shafer over the last 30 years – but its history stretches back far greater than that! Over the last 170 years, the Tyrone Mills has been a grist mill, flour mill, lumber mill, apple cider producer, historic tour center, bakery, and rural community center. Today, it continues to preserve its traditional roots through continual use of its water power in lumber manufacturing and flour production.

You can visit their site here.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our visit to this place. Everyone was so friendly. The staff was helpful and polite. We will be going back there again, I can tell you that. Do not pass this gem!

This will be the last post of some of the things you can see here. The final post (coming later today) will show some of the things we bought. How can one pass up getting fresh ground flour at a fabulous price?

While be were paying for our flour and chutney, Robert came in with a tray of wood fired oven fresh bread, stone ground on site and baked outside. We bought a loaf of sour dough bread. It was still warm. I followed Robert out to the oven and took some pictures of him in action.
And here is the loaf of bread that I tried with my dinner tonight. It was fantastic. Thanks Robert. We were going to post the old fashioned sugar donuts after dinner, but they were camera shy, due to the fact we ate them all.
