Aug 21-23 Thousand Islands
Gary had to pick up his shorebirds from the
Duck Shop in Clayton, so we made a long
weekend for a mini vacation, just the two of us.
We love the Thousand Islands, and would stay
with friends, Patti and John, who have a great
house on the river. But, now the verb is HAD!
Last winter did them in, so they sold and bought
a house in Greenville, SC. They will only be
1 /1/2 hrs away when we move to Cumming GA.
We stayed at the Riverside Hotel in Alexandria
Bay, ate at Riley's (superb), and took a river cruise
with Uncle Sam two nation tour. The guide was
great, intelligent and funny...had many personal
stories of the people, castles and fork lore of the
region. The cruise was 2 1/2 hours and very
relaxing. We learned there are actually 1, 864
islands in "The Thousand Islands."
We took photos along the way, stopping in
Sacket's Harbor for lunch and Clayton for antique
browsing. The weather was perfect!
