Kingston 6.1 016

Along the St Lawrence river, the waterway the divides Canada from the United States, in our part of the Norther Hemisphere.  Quiet little rest stops that allow the traveler to stop and rest along their journey.

This park was just outside of  Brockville, and yes the shore line you see off in the distance is the United States.  There was such a line up for fish and chips at the shop we always go to, that we settled for hamburgers at a c hip stand.  The cod /haddock would have been wonderful, but on a Sunday, the tourists were packed into the place, we can return another day.  To the right where these pleasure crafts are moored, is a trail that  goes down towards Fort Wellington, and a now derelict pier.  Soon this area will be full of people out to enjoy the sunshine.  Yesterday we met other dog walkers, and a few other nature lovers, but it was the supper hours so, for us, we enjoyed the lazy slow ambiance.  Saw big steamers in the water in Kingston, but I was  on the wrong side of the car to get a picture. =^_^=  next time…

Shad flies

We did run into swarms of shad flies.  Now this is an experience in and of itself   For the time they died by smashing into our car and all over the windshield, it was like something out of the science fiction novel.  You can read about the insect here http://www.mynewwaterfronthome.com/fishflies.aspx  The car will be visiting a car wash  today, this task is at the top of the to do list.

LOL this meal had nothing to do with our trip yesterday, (I wish)…. this was the meal I had during my visit to the States with my sisters in May.  It just looked so good, I wanted to share it.   I love veggies.  Mondays and Wednesdays at the Casino the buffets are half price. (Just past Massena, NY in the Indian Reserve itself)  I knew of the Casino because there is a fabulous quilt fabric shop just down the road from the Casino)  NB if you plan on trying it out, there is smoking allowed in the buildings there)

Lots of people love to spend time on the water, I lost count of all the marinas and boat launch sites we saw along the way myself I find quiet along the water, no so much on it.  A good hike into the mountains on a fall day, now mmm… nice.. that is more my speed.  LOL no way at this time of year.. uh uh, no thank.. the biters are out…

What about you.  Ready for a change of pace?
