1000 Islands, No Dressing

Boldt Castle

My roommate and I decided to take in some sightseeing of lovely Ontario before she moved back West.  We headed to Gananoque and then to the 1000 Islands region of the St. Lawrence River to check out the cottages on the water.  This has to be one of my favourite places outside of Toronto, absolutely beautiful and serene.  We took our passports so we could tour around Boldt Castle which is officially U.S. territory.  A day in the sun on the water and cold beer at the end.  Pretty much perfect.

Lovely little church on the river.

Wish this was my summer cottage.

Even the boat houses are bigger than my apartment.

First view of the castle from our boat.

Coming around to dock.

Alster Tower, aka “The Playhouse”

Lampstand. We didn’t get to see the castle lit up at night but I’ll bet it is stunning.
