St Lawrence Islands National Park: another item off my Life List

Recently, I spent a weekend visiting with friends in Gananoque, Ontario.  Well, technically we were out on one of the Thousand Islands, an archipelago of islands in the St Lawrence River that is near the U.S.-Canada border.

I actually spent a week at the same cottage last year and had a blast!  Little did I know until this past weekend visit, that a Canadian National Park was hiding, just around the corner from us!

If you haven’t seen it yet, I maintain a Life List…or a Bucket List (I just don’t like to call it that!)…or two lists rather; one lists all the things I want to do and experience in my life and the second notes all the places I would like to go.

A huge portion of the Places To Go list is dedicated to our Canadian National Parks, all of which I would like to visit at some point, so you can imagine that discovering that a national park was a short boat ride away was quite exciting!

St Lawrence Islands National Park is an absolutely amazing and beautiful park!  Sadly, I was only able to visit one island this time around and, considering there are 21 islands, I most definitely have to go back!  I’m not really sure that I can actually claim a *visit* since 1 of 21 means I haven’t seen much of the park.

But it’s a start…and it was lovely!
