16 June 2009 Photo: More Than Just Dressing

I am taking some vacation time this week while my sister is visiting from GA. Today was a perfect day so I took her up to Alexandria Bay (Alex Bay or A Bay for those in the know). Last year was my first time up there to do one of the boat tours of the Thousand Islands and it was a great way to spend a warm sunny day.

We did 2+ hour tour of the islands on the Two Nations Tour. Despite the busload of 5th and 6th graders on the boat, we had a great day. Well worth the drive and fee to get a look at how the other half lives. If you are wondering, this is the place where Thousand Island dressing was first made. George Boldt (the same one that Boldt Hall is named after for all my Cornell readers) helped to make the dressing famous and built the beautiful Boldt Castle which will never be completed. Find out why on the website below!
