    1000 Islands, A Spinoff from Diplomat's Report

    It was the end of another grueling period at work and I was exhausted. I needed rest but in order to really rest, I needed to get away. I didn't feel like flying somewhere and sadly I really don't know much about the country I live in so I decided to do something in Ontario. I saw an ad in my mail for Gananoque and decided to check it out. I've heard about 1000 Islands before, wanted to go but never got around to it. I decided to go for it this time. I told my friend about it and we decided to take the 3.5 hours trip and check out these Islands.

    The town relies on tourist coming in during the summer holidays so they do trick you into staying more than one day. Each hotel that I called offered great rates if you spend two nights or more so I decided on the two nights since I really needed the break.

    I will try not to duplicate too many pics that Diplomat may have already posted from his visit.

    We arrived just in time to take the 2 hour tour. It was an overcast day, nevertheless, we decided to go for the "two hour tour".

    I was excited about the adventure ahead. Were there really 1000 Islands on this lake? I was eager to discover. Turned out I got tired of clicking the camera trying to capture each Island. One notable thing to mention, in the midst of passing hundreds of Islands, we passed one that had a JAMAICAN flag flying in the wind. I was so stunned that I forgot to snap a picture so I decided on the route back I would take the pic. No such luck as the boat took another route back. Sigh. We are everywhere. Even in Gananoque. Note, there's a house on most of the Islands. Electricity, phone service, etc is transported via cables under water.
