Scotia Island

I was invited for my friend's get away weekend in the Thousand Islands in the St. Lawrence Seaway.  We stayed on a privately owned island for four days.  It might as well have been a weekend in heaven. 



There were two couples and myself.  Plenty of room!

Gorgeous when the sun was shining,
but even during the rainy day it was cozy.  We played games and watched a movie.  We visited both Boldt and Singer Castles.

We kayaked and used the paddle boat around the island.


We had time on the boat and my friend got to water ski--her favorite.

The fresh air made sleeping a treat, too.  And there was plenty of opportunity for ice cream.  Even retired people need a vacation sometimes!  Especially retired people who are selling a house and moving.

Thank you wonderful friends!

  5. I really wanted to get up to the Thousand Islands when we were in upstate New York, but we just couldn't fit it in to the time we had. Maybe someday.
    How lovely that you were included in this wonderful get away.

  6. Like Linda, I've always wanted to go for a visit to the Thousand Islands. I recall a book I once read about life up there, called "The Island" by Robert Russell. So ... maybe someday.

  11. I'm so glad you had such a lovely time, Olga. You deserve some peaceful time. I'm catching up with your life a bit. I'm secretly gone to Illinois to visit family again. It's a very hectic fall for us. And you sold your home!! Wow!
