    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.

    "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
