|If you look at the water in the foreground, you can see two currents meeting each other and creating lots of turmoil.|
We seriously couldn't have asked for a better day for our tour, and the pontoon boat they took us on had a canopy that kept us delightedly in the shade with a sturdy breeze blowing through.
|Rosie scooted from one door to another throughout the ride.|
|I quail at the costs of renovating or updating that house.|
|Yes, let's have our own lighthouse.|
|Nan's Place -- should be mine. (Except mine would have an apostrophe.)|
|Yes, it has right-of-way.|
|Where we moored.|
|He's a braver man than I.|
Rosie did not go into the water at all -- she doesn't like getting wet. Kane would have been in that water in a millisecond.
After a bit, we went for a ramble in the forest.
|Rosie waited patiently while Paula used the outhouse.|
Shortly after that, we got back in the water for more touring.
|Retirement suits him.|
We passed this island that brought Hitchkock's The Birds to mind. These are cormorants and they have taken over this island. Their excrement has killed most of the vegetation.
|We don't know what those pilings were for, but suspect there used to be some commercial mooring on the island.|
After the show, we went a little further west to Kingston where we stayed on the waterfront using our hotel points. When we checked in, the clerk told us that we had received a premium water-view room. There wasn't much to see at night, but I opened the curtains first thing the next morning to catch the view. This is what greeted me:
|Right at eye level.|
I looked out a different window and saw this view.
Ah. Much better.
After a leisurely breakfast, we moseyed back to Ottawa and were greeted with delight by Kane. He almost never jumps up on me -- he's not supposed to -- but he was beside himself with joy. His tail waggled his entire body. Such a warm welcome!
