1000 Islands, Kingston
Some Ottawa or Montreal inhabitants have their second home on the banks of the Saint Lawrence. In Winter, they can skate on the frozen water.
A cruise on Saint Lawrence : a pleasant way to discover the Thousand Islands one by one.
Take the exit 696 on Hgw 401. Price : 11$ per capita.
A lot of islands that are large enough for houses to be built on are purchased by rich and famous families whose members came to stay here (we've heard) in the summer. (Winter must be too cold!)
These are pictures of some of the islands and houses. From the taped narration played during the trip we learned that there are actually more than 1,000 islands along the US-Canada border.
