Where I stayed
More importantly Kingston sits on the junction of the Rideau Canal and Lake Ontario and is perfectly situated to tour the famous 1000 Islands, the area the tangy salad dressing was named after. After a good nights rest and awesome blueberry pancake breakfast we races to the small neighbouring town of Gananoque where we caught the 2.5 hour cruise of the 1000 Islands.
The islands are divided between the US and Canada by area instead of number of islands
The 2.5 hour cruise passed in no time and I'd recommend it anyone in the area and if you have longer dollars than we have, see if you can spend a night on one of the islands, that's sure to be a real treat.
We hit the road right after the cruise and not long into the trip I developed and incredible itch on my right knee. I initially though I'd been dinning list of some mosquitoes but could not remember hearing or seeing them and Inge-Marie was left strangely unscathed. By the time we arrived in Montreal a few more itchy spots appeared on my arms and I was beginning to wonder if I might be allergic to something, upon closer inspection we started realising what the cause might be....
