Thousand Islands

Thousand Islands

  • 53 Pins

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.

If these two were chess pieces, I'm not sure I could have arranged them any better than they did themselves.

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.

As summer winds down, the River's mood begins to change. Out here one doesn't need to move the camera to capture a different scene, only to pause briefly between shots.

The night sky hasn't been terribly cooperative this summer, but the view from Raleigh Island's ( 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.

Here's yesterday's "One in a Thousand" view. To say this River has a thousand moods is to sell it way too short.

"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

10 days ago I moved to shore, trying to delay the inevitable. It's not remotely like island life, but the River remains beautiful. This morning.
