Back to Kingston

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I wondered if this was a floating home.  Not the kind that you get in Vancouver, but a nice little houseboat to putter around the lake.

These poor plants a little way down the road from me, just shot up out of the ground and grew about six inches a day.  Then a frost finished off their short little lives.  I don’t know if they will come back or not.

Greenery and interesting things on the Cataraqui Trail.

I think Reid’s Dairy started in Belleville and I’m not sure how long they have been in Kingston.  This location is at Bath and Day’s Roads.   I don’t remember them when I was here before.  They have, by far, the lowest ice cream prices in town.

My new ‘hood!  I’m moving into Kingston.  I am so excited.  This is St. John’s Catholic Church on Patrick St.

CKWS, now owned by Corus Entertainment.  In my day we had CKLC as well.  I have a Boss 40 chart from the Dark Ages.  I put a copy on Vintage Kingston, but I don’t have it in my photo files.  I’ll have to dig it out again.

St. Paul’s churchyard at Queen and Montreal.  Molly Brant is supposedly buried here, but I don’t see her grave.  However, most of the graves are unreadable.

Things seem to be going very slowly at the Anna Lane construction site.  The poor people who pre-brought must be getting very frustrated.

Evening in Skeleton Park, just up the hill from my new home.  Unfortunately, the Skeleton Park Arts Festival happens before I move in.  It’s something you should check out if you’re in town:  June 12-21.  http://www.artskingston.ca/index.cfm/skeleton-park-arts-festival/

  1. Molly Brant is buried there, except I believe the graveyard used to be bigger, and her grave is actually out in the middle of Montreal Street or something like that!
