gone crusin’…thirty thousand islands
It’s the dog days of summer and rather inadvertently I’ve taken a holiday from blogging; more so simply as a result of my busy schedule than from a planned break. I was away, however, on vacation up north last week, cottaging and hanging at the Delawana Inn with friends, with a night’s stop in Parry Sound, Ontario in between, where I enjoyed a quiet night at the Windhorse bed and breakfast after taking in a Thirty Thousand Islands boat tour on the Island Queen and a fine local pickerel dinner at the Bay Street Cafe.
This week-long vacation in my own backyard and the beauty of the Thirty Thousand Islands and Georgian Bay region remind me of how fabulously gorgeous and diverse is this vast country of ours. I took the four-hour outer-island tour and at $35 for an adult ticket it is worth the treat of the landscape, the aquatic vistas, and the relaxing ride.
Not only are passengers treated to vast natural beauty, but the vacation properties that dot the islands are something to behold as well. I was particularly taken with this mid-century modern structure…
