Finally - July weather!!

At last we're getting our July weather - unfortunately, it's been the last week of August and the first week of September. Hot, sunny days for boating and swimming. We've certainly been making the most of it with numerous 3 and 4-night outings. Here are some pictures of the amazing scenes we've been blessed with. Last night we attended 'The Mollycoddlers' at the 1000 Islands Playhouse and spent the night at the Playhouse dock. After a trip uptown to the Village Deli for breakfast, we headed out. Today was an absolutely gorgeous day - hot sun and no wind. Locals know that's a perfect day to head to Leek Island (Thwartway on the charts). Leek Island is a Parks Canada island without docks (there are some mooring cans in a sheltered bay on the South side. The west side of the island has a huge bay with a sand beach which extends out from the island several hundred yards. Unfortunately the waves that created the beach make it unpleasant when the prevailing west wind is blowing, but today there was no wind. We were alone in the huge sandy bay for most of the morning and then around noon the other boats started to pile in. Time for us to leave - we headed down river and finally stopped at Gordon Island (Parks Canada) for supper and then motored home.
