enjoying the dock at Brown's Bay
During our travels this summer, it occurred to Gary & I that there is still so much to do, see, experience and enjoy throughout the St. Lawrence Parks. Part of the adventure is “getting there”. While travelling to
Fort Henry in Kingston
then on to Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, we enjoyed the St.
Lawrence Parks as we drove
along the heart of the majestic Thousand
Islands and at the foot of the towering . This jewel of the St.
Lawrence Parks system offers 150 campsites and four cabins set amid the granite
and greenery of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve. It was so calm
and relaxing we had a hard time continuing on, but excitement ahead spurred us
on. Ivy Lea Suspension Bridge
Brown's Bay Park ~ Part way along the
Island Parkway, lies the Brown's Bay Park area. It's amazing that I had never noticed it
before. I had passed it several times during our numerous journeys along the
Parkway. Fortunately this trip we did notice it and ventured in for a look. We
are glad that we did and have earmarked it as a place to visit again and to
spend much more time there (with perhaps a picnic lunch!) To discover more
about the St. Lawrence Parks Commission, please check out their website
Enjoy your travels!
