Who else is thinking of that special In-N-Out sauce right now? Just me? Well I guess this is also a sign that I grew up in California because the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of “Thousand Islands” is that Thousand Island dressing secret sauce that goes right over those juicy delicious In-N-Out hamburgers.
To continue on our family trip to Canada, we stopped to visit 1000 Islands, located on the border of Canada and the good ol’ United States. You can take a scenic boat ride out around the islands, and there are beautiful castles, cottages, and mansions galore. If you’ve ever wanted to live on an island, this is probably a good place to do it.
If you look closely, you can see the little bridge that connects Canada and the United States!
As you might be able to tell from the USA flag, we’re now on the United States side. Exciting moment because all of our phones were actually able to connect with our carrier and we had been on airplane mode for the duration of our trip.
Fairytale castles with plenty of lush trees and the beautiful ocean to make it complete.
Some more mansions and cozy looking cottages over on the US side.
What a clear, beautiful day. And what better way to embrace that then to take your old fishing pal and just spend the morning out on the waters?
The fact that you can just casually be in the middle of two countries and probably be in two places at once momentarily (cue “A Walk to Remember” sappiness) is pretty amazing and something to check off your bucketlist. Thousand Islands was a short stop for us, as we only took a couple hours on a boat tour, but if you want to extend your stay, click here for more things to do. Great weather, beautiful scenery, and a relaxing morning to complete our stay in Ontario!
