If you’ve ever been to Kingston, Ontario, you’ve probably looked across the harbour to Wolfe Island. Wolfe Island is the largest of the 1000 Islands, and located in Lake Ontario, Canada. It’s quaint and cute and easily accessible from city hub of Kingston. Kingston itself has lots going on, but if it’s a sunny day, hop on the free Wolfe Island Ferry (aptly named the Wolfe Islander III) and check out the island.
The Village has recently opened a brand new building as their main exhibit/gift shop/ticket office. It’s a great spot to grab a souvenir from the Island. When you first enter, the exhibit asks ‘mood setting’ questions about home to get you in the immigrant mindset. The text inside the exhibit is in both French and English, and shares a little bit about the story of the Scottish in Scotland, their relationship with the British, and what factors made them come to Nova Scotia.
Windsor is a small town about 40 minutes from Halifax in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada. This little town has come a long way in the last ten years, and is now not only a spot young families choose to make home, but also a great destination for travelers. If you’ve come to Windsor, and perhaps are staying at my AirBnB, you’ve come to a great spot – especially if you’re keen on good food and fancy cocktails!
