Tall Ships Festival 1

Bored kids, glorious sunshine, and spontaneity led us to the Tall Ships festival in Brockville on Saturday.

The tall ships were amazing, but for me the best part was watching the traffic on the St. Lawrence. I’ve never been near a busy water highway like that, and it was really entertaining – kinda like people watching from a coffee shop window.

Sailboats, speedboats, freighters, sea-doos, motorboats, kayaks, ferries, coast guard, yachts…I don’t even know all the different names of the vessels!

Definitely worth a visit, especially with little ones whose jaws like to drop at the sight of anything motorized.

Oh, and if you’re ever headed that way, Brockville has wonderful historical architecture, and we discovered a great restaurant I’d highly recommend: the Brockberry on King St.
