Friday, as I traveled between Ottawa and Toronto, I stopped to take a boat tour of this portion of the St. Lawrence River, part of which is actually a Canadian National Park (a real National Park…). These were taken with my digital camera during the first hour and a half of a 2 1/2 hour boat ride, after which I was informed by my camera that the SD card on which the photos are stored was FULL (after being put into service only 3 weeks previously!). For the final hour I took photos with my smartphone and will post those photos (not as many) in the next set of posts.
These are posted in the order in which they were taken.
The photo below is of a small waterfront house with a For Sale sign in front of it. I have blanked out the name and phone number of the realtor as I doubt they would split the commission with me if a blog reader buys the house.
I looked up the property (a month and a half after I took the photo) and as of the date of this post, it is still available. 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, curiously a one story 891 sq. ft. house on a 871 sq. ft. lot! I guess the dock isn’t living space, nor is the boat “garage”. Asking price? $299,900 USD (it’s in New York State if that affects your possible consideration).
Here is another private home, presumable NOT for sale.
And here is the first look at Boldt Castle, located on a private island on the New York side of the St. Lawrence River. Our boat made a lap around the island so you will see several photos from various angles. FYI – Boldt Castle is the BIG one in the background….
The photo below is of the Boldt Yacht House, located on another nearby island. You’ll see another photo of it in the next post (4 of 4).
The 2 photos below are of the Power House, one of the most photographed items on the tour and a popular spot for wedding photos.
