Acting BalancedI've had a lot to say the last couple of days.

Kinda sick of my own thoughts.

So, brace yourselves: it's a photo explosion!

(head on over to Acting Balanced to see others' pics.)

1000 Islands Cruise, Gananoque, Ontario CANADA
 Learn more about the 1000 Islands HERE

It is a fantastic river boat cruise - the kids loved it.
And you would not believe the homes/cottages people build on the islands.   Some islands are quite big and have several homes, but others are quite small; and still - they build!

Some of my faves:
 
if you zoomed in, there are bridges connecting the various building

Course, you will need a boat to get to your cottage


Some are fancier than others

this is so so cool!

The front view -- look at that water lounger!



More  - like the hobbit cottage and a real castle! - after the jump




you would not believe the landscaping on this one - Yes, those are garden retaining walls!


Little Island - Big home

my fave - the Hobbit Cottage I call it


this one is MASSIVE -- the cruise boat is quite far away - I zoomed as close as I could

And finally, if you got an extra million or two lying around, this one is all ready for you to build your dream cottage upon:




Or, you could just travel a little further up the river and really see your dream.....Castle:



 HA - tricked ya.
That's just the Yacht House!!

THIS is  Boldt Castle!








If you ever find yourself in the Kingston, Gananoque area....it is a must see trip!
