We left Arnprior very well fed around 9:30 am. Doug and Nancy deserve 5 stars for their hospitality and culinary prowess. It was nice to see them again and we were grateful for such a laid-back and refreshing stop over on this road trip.
- We headed south toward Kingston on the shore of Lake Ontario, stopping along the way to snap a pic of Five Arches Bridge.
- Into Kingston around noon. First stop at St. Mary’s Cathedral to marvel at the wonderful illumination in this church. Very gothic in design with huge double high windows on each side of the nave. There are more than 100 individual panels telling the entire story of Christianity.
- Attached to the cathedral is St. James Chapel with its own stunning windows including a rose! It is truly an artistic heritage in Canada. For all photos, see Gallery/World Windows/Kingston, Ont – St. Mary’s
- We checked in early at the Confederation Place Hotel and then enjoyed 2 hours of street strolling. The sun shone brightly and lots of pedestrians were out enjoying it.
- A late lunch was at Montes. Irish cuisine curbside under an umbrella. Great fun people watching. Great lamb burger!
- We strolled along the water front to settle lunch and enjoy the many historic landmarks and monuments. Kingston goes back to the Loyalists and is famous for too many things to write here, not to mention its beautiful waterfront promenade.
- The next day we headed West along the shore of Lake Ontario to visit some wineries in Pince Edward County. We stopped at a couple of our old favorites (Sandbanks and Clossen Chase) and discovered a couple of new ones (Black Prince and Broken Stone). Wonderful memories of this place.
- In the afternoon, we arrived in Bowmanville at our friend’s house. We’ve known Peter Lappalanein for sbout 30 years. He is a master on the BBQ and we enjoyed a fantastic home cooked meal of steak and potatos. It was good to see him again and his 15 year old cats, Paris and Peaches.
