Kingston Ontario (part 2)

9 Jun

Forgive me, my friends.

Yesterday’s blog about Kingston Ontario was sadly lacking. It did not mention the wonderful history, graceful buildings, and pleasure that IS the City of Kingston. So, to rectify yesterday’s oversight, here is Kingston Ontario (part 2)…

The city was calling, and the lake most certainly was NOT (once again the winds were determined to make Bushranger dance), so Boyd and I decided that tourism has the duty of the day…

We hopped on the Hop On Hop Off Trolley to see the sights. Here are some of the highlights…

 We stopped to visit the home of Sir John A. MacDonald, the first Canadian Prime Minister…

What a lovely way to step back into history…

…would you believe me if I said that we could almost sense Sir John’s wife watching, making sure we didn’t leave any grubby fingerprints on her well-preserved furniture (just kidding, ha!).

 Now, this blog would not be accurate without mentioning last night’s dining experience. While looking for a convenient place for dinner, we fell into this…

…little did we know that it is Ontario’s oldest brew pub. This is what we saw as we entered…

Absolutely unforgettable! Thank you Kingston.

P.S. I’ve decided to add a little postscript to each blog entry where we’ve visited a marina. Specifically, I’m going to give a score (between 1 and 10, with 10 being the best) for the 3 things that are closest to my heart:  the toilets (t), the showers (s) and the laundry (l).  Of course, these numbers reflect only my opinion (and I don’t intend to present any supporting data for whatever number I give)…it’s JUST MY OPINION…

    What a colorful city. And I think your rating system could help fellow loopers.
