20 years ago, following my first summer here, I mentioned to the former owners of our island (who had lived here since the early '50s) that there were geese on the River. They were astounded! I wonder how they would have reacted if I had shown them this:

We just moved back to the island from shore. It's amazes me how the world changes entirely just a few hundred yards away from the mainland. It's not even remotely the same and why I feel so incredibly fortunate to have the privilege of living on an island.

Back tonight after three days of exploring the historic and beautiful Rideau Waterway by boat with Lyne Roberge. On our way home, we tied up at Canada's 1000 Islands (Endymion Island) National Park. Yet another jewel! We are so incredibly fortunate to call this area home.

The night sky hasn't been terribly cooperative this summer, but the view from Raleigh Island's (OneinaThousand.ca) dining room - three Adirondack chairs and a table on a flat slab of granite - was pretty decent on Monday night. Here's hoping September's cooler nights will provide even better opportunities.

The recent ice storm produced a monochrome painting, which only in the last moments of the following days when the clouds evaporated, briefly allowed the sun to add a few brush strokes of color.

"In August, Canada’s Juno nominated band “Great Lake Swimmers” visited McLellan Group’s ‘Eastern Office’ in the 1000 Islands. With three great shooters, perfect weather, underwater cameras and the River’s funkiest barge, we created the official video for “Ballad of a Fisherman’s Wife” from their acclaimed “New Wild Everywhere” album. It's 3 minutes long and will give you a wonderful last 'hit' of Summer." - Doug McLellan, CEO, McLellan Group
