We left Scranton nice and early and headed up to Sackets Harbor for brunch.

It was raining on our walk around town and so at one point we took shelter in a pavilion in the park. There Eli & Lachie made friends with a little guy (Nate) that was also sheltering there with his family. Giving up that the rain would stop, we made a dash for the  a nice pub with great views and had a fun lunch with Nate & his parents. The day was off to a wet start…

After which we headed to Alexandria Bay and across to the beuatiful, unique and unfinished Boldt Castle.
(even Eli had never seen so many “hidden” love hearts in one place)

Then we met our new friends from lunch and very kindly spent the aftoon on their boat enjoying the Thousand Islands (Thank you very much Doug, Renae and Nate).

After which it was an evening cruise to see the 9pm fireworks over Boldt Castle. While waiting for the fireworks there was a little dancing to be done…

From the number of spectators gathering along the shore-line, we knew it was going to be spectacular

According to Eli the fireworks were magicical and Boldt Castle looked just like the Disney Castle. Even the traffic jam so that we arrived at the hotel (at Watertown) shortly before midnight couldn’t ruin the day. A long but awesome day! Happy Fourth 🙂

    Gooday
    The 1000 Islands is a fantastic area
    The diversity in housing styles is truly awesome, I’m glad that you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
    Love
