The Thousand Islands – St. Lawrence River

The Thousand Islands consists of 1,864 islands that exists in the St. Lawrence River between the US-Canada border.  We took a river cruise that traveled from Rockport, Ontario to Boldt Island, which is part of New York State.

Before boarding our boat, we were entertained by speedboats participating in a Poker Race.

Hidden behind the tress is Boldt Castle, which is going through a restoration.  Alster Tower, front left, is also considered the playhouse.  It was to house a bowling alley, billiard room, library, bedrooms and kitchen.
