In the 1800s, Kingston’s shipbuilding and national defense prospered and it was the first capital of Upper and Lower Canada. Fort Henry was a British stronghold during the War of 1812 and reigns over the entrance to the Kingston Harbor. The Canadian Royal Military Academy is also built on the shores here.
While fueling we were greeted by the Canadian Border patrol. Just checking!! The forces were all represented here: Border Patrol, Canadian Coast Guard and the Kingston Prison looming over the marina. This maximum security prison opened in 1835 and is one of the oldest prisons in continuous use in the world.
As we traveled on we saw a great example of the wind working in two diverse ways.
We made it almost to Belleville and anchored in a peaceful cove for the night. Dan gave fishing a shot but we had kielbasas for dinner.
