1000 Islands Gallery 2004
Our second camp was in the Mallorytown, ON KOA which put us in the famous and scenic 1000 Islands region of the St Lawrence river.
Thanks for the info. I guess the fact there are no border crossing stations should have been a clue. ;-)
I'm afraid "Shortest International Bridge" is off the mark. Local tour boat operators have been telling this hoary tall tale for generations. I first heard it as a kid in the sixties and again in '03. The lie adds a bit of spice to their monologue. Both islands are located in Canadian waters. The flags seen along the bridge are merely symbols of the friendship that exists between these two nations. The main island is
named Zavicon, I forget the other's. They are located about 100 meters north of the border line.
Wonderful travleogue of the 1000 islands. Funny how 1000 has a certain ring to it.
