The Thousand Islands – Saturday

Saturday we got up extra early (why?) got ready and headed for a breakfast buffet (mmmm, breakfast, my favorite meal), which pretty much held us all day long.  We then headed down to Clayton, stopping first at this marine store, where there were various sizes of anchors that had been rescued from the bottom of the river. Here’s some of the smaller ones:

We then headed to the Antique Boat Museum and the Antique Boat Regatta.

It was quite windy, as you can see from the water!

I love the old wooden boats.

We were hoping to go through ‘La Duchesse,’ but it was closed for the Regatta weekend.

This houseboat was built for George Boldt for living, housing guests, and entertaining.

We then took a nap here, because somebody was grumpy from not sleeping good on the ground (hmmmm, yes, it was me):

Then we went to Corbin’s River Heritage store, which was so cool! The walls were filled with old photos that could be bought. And there were tons of books, of which I bought a couple.

Then it was time to get ready for our three hour dinner cruise. Note to anyone wanting to take a dinner cruise – make reservations – that way you get a table by yourself and in a prime location!

It’s so cool to see so many islands, and the huge houses that people build on them. Don’t sleep walk, you may end up in the river!

As we were eating we passed under The Thousand Islands bridge:

After we finished eating, we sat in the bow and enjoyed the fresh evening air:

And by the time we got back, it was late, so we went straight to the ground and I slept like a log.
