Friday 15th July 2011…I landed in Paradise!!!

Sorry I didn’t get on the Internet last night so this post is from yesterday…will post again later tonight!!

After Scott cooked me a great breakfast I was on the road by 9.30am first stop was a gas station on the reserve where gas was $1.17 cheapest I have seen in Canada and then onto Kingston  and Costco.

By now you know my camera got water damaged by the Falls and not usable I had the receipt and off I went to the return desk ….no more than 5 minutes later I was walking out of Costco with a brand new camera exactly the same as I had got in Nanaimo….just have to love Costco!!!!!

I then drove towards downtown Kingston and found somewhere to park and walked to downtown at the Visitors Centre.  Kingston had a nice feel to it and lots of activities….there was a trolley tour for 12 dollars which I took and enjoyed and learned lots about the city..here are some of the sights!!

Kingston is the home to many prisons, the Queens College and the Royal Military Academy…it was a great tour and I enjoyed seeing and learning about the city.

Back on the road again I stopped here for a quick bite to eat!!
