Kingston, ON


We elected to stay two nights in Kingston as there were many sights to see.  A university town, Queens University with its 20,000 students keeps the town vibrant.   About 150,000 people and at one time the capital of Canada.  Pam and Kurt had left their car here
so they headed to see friends in the NYC area, about a 6 hour drive.  We had to watch the weather as we had to cross Lake Ontario to Oswego, NY about 55 miles.  Since we are are on the eastern side of the lake the prevailing westerly winds can make for some large short period waves.
