Leaving Quebec City to spend a few days with our friends Rick and Edyie. They live on Mazinaw Lake near Coyn, Ontario. A beautiful lake, and 2nd deepest in North America at 555′ with the exception of the Great Lakes. They were so gracious as to tour us around the lake in their boat, and then do two days of cruising around the area by land. We did a lot of the Trent Severn Waterway including the Peterborough lift lock. Ate in some great places then stopped by Dooher’s Bakery in Campbellford to pick up cream filled glazed donuts that are the best ever.
Next day it was over to Cananoque for a boat tour of the Thousand Islands of the St. Lawrence Seaway. We did a fast tour of Kingston by car. A beautiful city with many stone buildings, but had no real time for photos. Then Rick and Edyies’ daughter, Jenny. was kind enough to look after Trois for several hours while we did the boat tour. Jenny is a nurse at the hospital in Kingston. She and Trois seemed to have a great time together. Pictures follow.
Kingston across the Rideau River from Ft. Henry.
So, now the tour of the Thousand Islands where we went to pick up some salad dressing. You will recognize Bolt Castle. The “cottages” with American Flags are on the US side of the St. Lawrence. The Canadian Flags are on the Canada side. What a beautiful area.
This was the power house for Bork Castle.
This is the boat house for Bork Castle. It is built on the land side. When it was built they were using large steam powered boats. The Roof would open up to let out the smoke when the boilers were fired up with coal fuel.
Mean while back to the cabin. The sunrise over Mazinaw Lake the next morning. Then leaving for home with stops at Niagra on the Lake and Niagra Falls to show Trois.
Prince of Wales Hotel in Niagra on the Lake. What a beautiful little town. I have never see so many flowers in one place. Then it was on to take Trois to Niagra Falls like we promised.
We crossed the border back to the US at Fort Erie coming out at Buffalo, NY. There Trois learned that he was not French after all. So now he is back to being just plain Troy.
Badea, badea, badea that’s all folks.
