1 000 Islands  
Yesterday I went out with my two weird friends and my dad to 1 000 Islands which is a two and a half hour drive from Montreal and it was so pretty!!

The Thousand Islands is located in the Saint Lawrence River in Ontario <3

That was the boat ship that we boarded to take the one hour cruise!! The ship's too big and I wasn't able to fit the entire length of it into the shot ^^;;

I really liked their ship!! It has a red wheel in the back!! Our ship was too modern therefore we weren't "old" enough to have a wheel on the back of of ours :3 Just like how I was a weirdo taking a picture of their ship, there were weirdos on that ship who took pictures of ours too!! Unless they were taking a picture of the scenery behind us?

During the boat ride my two friends and I laid claim to houses and islands that were within the vicinity!!

This was the house that I called as mine!! It's a relatively pretty house and it has like a small waterfall thing in front of it!! <3

This was the house/island that one of my two friends laid claim on. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a picture of the house/island that my other friend had wanted since her designated house was too far away and the photo wouldn't have turned out pretty ^^;;

But this one... This is a CASTLE!! AND I WANT IT!! It's called "Boldt Castle" because I'm assuming that it's named after the person who built it, but from this day forward, it'll be know as "Corrine Castle" because I hereby claim this to be mine and mine only!! *plants her flag*

These are Canadian Geese and they are swimming away because of the oncoming speed boat that basically pwned them with it's waves... Imagine the waves that Captain Fail!boat Sho had to deal with when he was commanding the ships... Yeah... THAT BIG!!

This here is supposed to be an eagle with a newly caught fish in it's talons... But because it was flying away so quickly, my camera wasn't able to zoom in or focus on time because of the speed of that damn bird... Damn birds of prey and their amazing speed!!

I LOVE THESE SOUVENIR MACHINES!! I always get them whenever I can!! You basically put in a dollar coin (the loonie) in it and crank away!! I even bought an album for them (I bought a lot of them when I was at Granby Zoo and Toronto Zoo)

The one that I got was BOLDT CORRINE CASTLE since it was the prettier of the three. I had initially wanted the one with the ship, but the ship that I was on wasn't the Ivy League Village (TT___TT) and the one on the bottom isn't pretty at all!

This wasn't the luxury bus that we were on (we were on a boring green one), but I really liked the exterior of this bus!!

Afterwards, our tour group thingy went to the nearby casino where we were forced to stay... FOR FIVE BLOODY HOURS!! (My two friends and I got carded when we entered :3)  Luckily there was a wide plasma screen TV that was airing FIFA (Chile vs. Brazil) :3

I love the clouds and how happy and innocent they look just floating there!!

AHHHHH!! THE SUN'S BEING EATEN ALIVE BY RAIN CLOUDS!! (It was raining in Montreal, but was really cloudy in the Thousand Islands) That was literally the last few bits of sunlight before it got covered eaten by the rain clouds!!

*sobs* JAPAN LOST!! *drinks her melon flavored ramune in despair while waving her Japan flag*

Oh gosh. You've already gone to so many great places this summer!
I definitely want to visit Corrine Castle some day~

Hehe. Souvenir coins.
That adds another thing to the list of trinkets I can send you ;3
At the moment, the only place I can recall seeing them is the aquarium...

Corrine Castle is superior!! It even has an elevator (no joke) and it's on an isolated island :3

Yaaaay~! If you end up buying/cranking some out, please do!! I'll definitely pay you back since I love them and I don't want to make you broke ^^;;

The castle is really pretty! It looks kinda fairy tale-like XD Anyone living in there?

As far as I know, no one lives there anymore and it's been converted to like a park/tourist destination I live in there!

Lately there's been too many geese around. ^^;;
corlee1289: OMFG! Jun's hair!! :flails:corlee1289 on July 1st, 2010 02:39 am (UTC)
Yes it is!! :3 Though I don't think it's as pretty as it is in BC <3

And despite me loving the coin thingymabobs, they're a pain to crank!! Especially if the design you want is all the way at the other end!! So you have to crank it for a while!!

And yesh, I've noticed that too, but it's because they came back from down south ne? But come fall, they'll all fly away and make that infamous V and honking noises as they fly away!
