The stlawrencepiks site presents results from our interests in history and digital photography, with emphasis on the St. Lawrence region and the Morrisburg/South Dundas area where we live.

I have included photo galleries for each season of the year and for the historic & beautiful buildings around the community. I have also included galleries based on two of our other passions: Flowers and Food. I also added a Wild Life Gallery and a Boats Gallery - click on Galleries to see all the available selections.
