Allow me to cheat a little on this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge and for the (not so) Wordless Wednesday. This is as close to the sea as I can get this time of year. This is the waters of the Saint-Lawrence river. As I mentioned yesterday, we took a quick trip to the Thousand Islands last Sunday. It was a good day to be outdoors, and an even better day to be on the water with the temperatures hovering above the 25 degree mark (Celsius). Aboard the “Wildcat“, we made our way upstream, taking a closer look at some of the area’s more prominent islands. The captain did an excellent job narrating each island’s history as we navigate through the river while occasionally speeding up to get the adrenaline pumping as we hit open waters . It was an hour cruise, short and sweet, but enough for me to get a taste of what it may be like to be on board a speed boat. Perhaps the only thing missing was the feel of the salty air filling up my lungs. It did give me a nice “hair make over” though, but nothing that a good ol’ solid brush can’t fix. It was an amazing experience and I cannot wait to do it all over again.
