ANNIVERSARY TRIP AND A CASTLE

I would love to share some pictures from our trip to The 1000 Islands.
We arrived in Alexandria New York at about 4:00 pm on Thursday afternoon. We checked into Captain Thompson's Resort.
We had our Anniversary dinner at a very quaint restaurant.

We love a good cup of coffee and we enjoy looking around quaint little shops, one never knows what may be hiding in these places.

Since this is a place of 1000 islands we decided to go have a look for ourselves.

Here are just a few of the places we saw on our tour, of course there are many million dollar homes, these places although beautiful I will not bore you with them. Here are a few that we could relate to.

I so loved it when a very large ship went by every so often. Another boat tour.
Mr. Nook loves the boat museums and just about anything to do with boats. I loved the vintage era of the poster and the water skies.
This bag was hanging on a doorknob in a house boat.
More great boats.
How would you like for your hubby to build you something like this???
This is a castle on Heart Island. Mr Boldt built this for his wife back in 1900.
I have more fantastic pictures to share with you, stay tuned for next post, you won't want to miss this....
I could not stop thinking about this place for two days! GOSH
I am linking up to the following parties:
French Inspiration at The French Cupboard
Vintage Inspiration at Common Ground
Thanks for stopping by.

We LOVE the Boldt Castle and the 1000 islands. We are planning to get over their again either late summer or early fall! So glad you and Mr. Nook had a great time and that you love it too!! We spent an entire day at the boat museum when we were there. I LOVED the houseboats with fire places in them!
Thanks for sharing your trip and stirring up my memories!!

Seems like a long time ago guys used to build homes for their beloved. :) Looks like you two had such a wonderful time. Loved all the photos. Did you take that picture of the bird with the seed in his mouth on your banner? It's wonderful! Have a super great weekend. ~ Lynn @thevintagenest

Michele,

Thanks for the tour of 1000 Islands. I remember being there when I was a child. My father was a Capt so if it had anything to do with the sea, ships, canals, we were there. Such a quaint town and the Boldt Castle is magnificent. I will have to add this to my list of places to revisit.
