Come visit Kingston & Wolfe Island

After our visit to 'The County', it was time to show off our little slice of heaven, Kingston, to Christine and David.  There is so much history here, we tried to see as much as we could.
Although Kingston Prison does offer tours, (worth taking), 
we opted for a photo instead.
(Check out my previous blog on it)
We enjoyed the Pen Museum, but given the nature of certain exhibits, I decided not to take any photos.  It is a big part of our history, 
so I highly recommend a visit.
We did make a stop at Bellevue House which was the home of our first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald, for a year.
Take advantage of Canada's 150th birthday to get a pass from Parks Canada, so you can visit this stately home for free!

Our next junket was a ferry ride across to Wolfe Island.
 Anyone living in this area knows that we have been inundated with an overabundance of rain this year, 
resulting in severe flooding everywhere.

Our friend's front lawn under water!

This tree does not normally sit in the water!
The last stop was a visit to Bedford Mills which was a tiny Mill Town.
We are friends with the current owners of the Mill, 
who have renovated it into a lovely home.

The run off that used to power the mill still rages.
They even have taken a couple families of geese
under 'their wing' and feed them daily.
More Kingston and surroundings coming up next!
