Weretoad and I recently celebrated our two year anniversary in Kingston, Ontario. We’d never gone there before despite it being so close so we decided to make a weekend out of it. Here’s what we got up to!
We went to a tree garden at the Woodworkers’ Museum just outside of Kingston. The inside was neat too.
We learned a lot about tools and enjoyed the beautiful, aerial photographs of Canadian forests.
|Just before crossing into America, there’s a tower overlooking the Canadian side of the 1000 Islands.Lovely view!
|We also went on a Haunted Walk tour. It was a blustery, rainy day but totally worth it.The weather only added to the atmosphere. Someone took a really interesting photo that looked
like a spirit leaving a supposedly haunted mansion.
|Just as in Ottawa, Kingston has a little memorial commemoratingthe Irish who died working on the Rideau Canal in Ontario. This one
doubles as a drinking fountain. And yes, I used it. Gives “The Waters of
Life” a whole new meaning!
Other highlights of the trip included a fantastic view of where the St. Lawrence meets Lake Ontario outside our hotel window, a sustainable living boutique called P’Lovers, and an open-air antique market where I found a lovely, synthetic skinned bodhran!
