Canada Snapshots - A thousand Islands !

One thing I really enjoyed during my trip to Canada was the boat ride on the  1000 islands. 1000 islands is a group of more than a thousand islands dotted upon the St Lawrence river. Some of the islands are relatively big and some tiny enough to hold just a small house.The river here actually forms an International border between US and Canada so some of the Islands fall in the US and some in Canada.
Most of these islands have been bought by the rich and the famous and they have built beautiful summer homes there. The houses are so spectacular that I spent most of the boat ride half hanging out of the boat lusting after them and wishing that one day the good lord gives me enough money to buy homes like these.
The bridge across the St Lawrence river with US on one side and Canada on the other.


Some of the islands are tiny enough to hold just one house ! Most of them have flags to show which country the Island belong to ! 



This family owns two islands and have built a quaint little bridge to connect them. How cute is that ! 





Most of the residents spent their summers doing this 




or this 


This is life eh !

  2. I've seen the US version of 1000 islands. Thanks for sharing them from a Canadian's POV. They are so gorgeous, particularly the 2 little islands connected by the bridge. Sigh!
