Trip to Kingston and Some Locks

Today we left Smiths Falls at about 10 a.m. and headed for Kingston, Ontario.

We took the scenic route and stopped at Chaffey's Locks on the way.

On our way from Chaffey's Locks toward Hwy 10, this little fawn was standing in the middle of the road. It was soooo cute!

On Dee's bucket list is a wish to see all the great lakes. She already had Lake Michigan and on this trip so far she's seen Lake Erie so today we headed to Kingston so she could see Lake Ontario. She got her photo however the place was so busy, there was nowhere to park so we just drove around the city. We drove to Fort Henry but they won't even let you in the parking lot anymore without paying the fee. We tried to take the ferry to Wolfe Island but missed it by three cars so rather than wait an hour we left. All in all, a disappointing trip to Kingston. For those of you that don't know, Kingston was the original capital city of Canada. If you want to know more about that, click on the link.

The only photo I took at Kingston was of Jim and Dee at Swiss Chalet. Thanks Jim and Dee for treating us to lunch!

On the way back we stopped at Kingston Mills Locks

And then at Upper Brewers Lock.

When we got back we fixed Jim up with a booster for his computer as he's having trouble connecting with the wifi at the RV park. Hopefully that will help him out.


  1. Hi Sandra,
    love your photos, especially the ones with the animals- I think the dogs with their life jackets were precious. It looks like you had spectacular weather today, a shame the trip was not everything it could have been.


  2. It was a great day for us. Thanks so much for taking us to Kingston. The locks are so fascinating. This is such a great place!

  3. Glad to see life jackets on those two small dogs. Kingston doesn't sound like my kind of place but I have been through that neighborhood & liked it along the St. Lawrence river & Gananoque. Really enjoyed the St. Lawrence thousand island river cruise to an Island where there was an old castle. I think it might have been called Boldt castle or something like that.
