I am loving my province this summer. Hot, hot hot! I recently got back from a five day road trip that kicked off in Prince Edward County, meandered along the Empire Loyalist Parkway to Kingston and ended in Ottawa. I saw things I’d always wanted to see, white water, islands, a castle, fine foodie establishments and the Diefenbunker. Never underestimate what is in your own backyard!
Drake Devonshire elegant lakeside luncheon. What a view.
Stopped at Hinterland for bubbly. Way before confederation, Kingston was our capitol. Lasted until 1844. Everyone loves an old train. Pan Chancho for breakfast and snacks for later. OMG good. In the area known as 1000 Islands there are actually 1800 islands…so gorgeous. Plus Boldt Castle…on the US side. Remember your passport! Our digs in Ottawa? Chateau Laurier. Wow. Best way to cool off on a hot day? Go whitewater rafting with OWL in the Ottawa Valley. Wickedly good.
To really chill, we went to a hot spot during the Cold War, Carp. Ont. The Diefenbunker was built in 1959 and thankfully never used for its original purpose…protection during a nuclear attack. Actually very chilly 75 feet down.
