Serenity Now...Insanity Later!

Serenity now...On our last day in the Thousand Islands we checked out of the motel and stopped at Grass Point State Park. First we took a leisurely kayak trip out to the Rock Island Light for a tour.

What a pristine island run by the parks department.
The view of the river was great and we could see where the shallow water drops right off to over 100 feet.

 The winding staircase was 'dizzifying', and the top looked like the inside of a ship, outlined in wood.

 We found out that this wreck is the remains of the last ferry boat that was used before the 1000 Islands Bridge was completed.

 Insanity later...After loading up the kayaks, we launched Moxie for one last blast out to our favorite swimming area. Now you can see why we call the back of the boat Moxie Beach, with its sand colored lounging pad.

The weekend boat traffic made for lots of wakes, but Moxie plowed through at 25 mph (and caught air a couple of times), giving us a wild ride!

We couldn't leave the St. Lawrence without "one more for the road"...freighter that is!
