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.
We saw two large cargo ships in the distance. The red one is traveling west, towards me, and the yellow one is traveling east, towards the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll see more photos of these ships later in this post.
These are more photos of Boldt Castle, in a private island on the New York side of the St. Lawrence River. One can take a boat tour which includes a stop on the island, and with an opportunity to visit the castle, but I did not take that tour.
The photo below is of the Yacht House, part of the Boldt complex but located on another nearby island.
This is another small house located on it’s own little island.
To help put the size in perspective to it’s surroundings, here is a photo showing some of the other people on my boat taking photos of the house in the distance.
And to put the size of the red cargo ship in perspective, here is a photo showing it full frame as seen from the boat I was on and near a small island.
