As I mentioned in my previous post it is really hot at the moment, so today (Monday) we decided to drive up to Gananoque and take a boat tour of the 1000 Islands.
We got to Gananoque an hour before our tour was due to begin and exchanged our internet voucher ticket to real tickets. It was incredibly hot that day and we ended up sitting in the nearby cafe eating ice cream before joining the line to board.
We started off in the middle deck of the boat inside, but soon moved to the top deck as the weather was so beautiful. Thankfully the motion of the boat across the water causing a good breeze, soon gave some relief from the heat.
There is a constant narration as you travel both in English then French. The tour also includes details and images of some of the many shipwrecks in the lake making it very interesting. We also saw lots of osprey nests along the way as well as many huge and beautiful homes. The tours also goes past Bolt Castle which is very beautiful. You can do a tour which takes you on the island to tour the castle, but we did not do this.
Our tour was 2.5 hours and it was really good, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It also made for a pretty relaxing day.
On the way home we stopped off at Kingston and went round the outlet mall there. After that it was home for dinner and an early night.
