It’s HOT here in Central Pennsylvania, so it seems logical to continue the “going north” theme of my “I miss the mountains” post a few days ago. Turns out I also miss northern waters.
I am absolutely enthralled by the Great Lakes. So far, I’ve been on the US shores of Erie, Michigan, and Ontario. The others are on my you-know-what list, and I’m really itching to see them from both sides of the border.
Sackets Harbor, NY is on the banks of Lake Ontario, near the point where it meets the St. Lawrence and an easy drive from Watertown NY. It was an unexpected surprise during a September trip to the 1000 Islands. More about that trip in a future post. Sackets Harbor is historically important—there’s a War of 1812 battlefield there—and absolutely lovely. You can see in the photo above that the blue of the lake and sky just about match! How’s that for soothing?

Put Wellesley Island in your bucket! Follow I-81 N to the border. It was an interesting 3 days for a home base to explore the island and towns on both sides of the border. A boat trip on the St. Lawrence was also worthwhile.

Alexandria Bay, right? We’ve done that–same trip. I’d go back in a heartbeat!
