The lake is named after Andrew Leamy, an Irish settler in the region who operated a mill near the lake. He was married to Erexina Wright, the granddaughter of Hull's founder, Philemon Wright. The area became heavily industrialized in the nineteenth century. [...] In the 1960s much of the area around the lake was turned into a large park. (Wikipedia)Between Lac Leamy and the adjoining Lac de la Carrière, a former quarry, is the Casino and Hilton Hotel.
On Wednesday evening, we saw a pair of loons * on the water and banks of violets flowering against fallen logs. Commandeered by a French speaking instructor, a ladies' fitness group kept overtaking us on the path round the lake, looking like a delegation from the Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks.
