Before we get started, I should be completely honest with you. I have lived in Kingston, Ontario for the better part of my life – so, naturally, this particular experience was on familiar territory. After spending a sunny afternoon with Kingston Food Tours, however, I was amazed at just how much I didn’t know about the Limestone City. [Read more…]

Exploring our local assets today with some cross country explorers! Everywhere we went with our @greatwaterway film crew location scouts from @makehaymedia we kept running into the amazing members of the C3 (coast to coast to coast) ship on a similar tour. Crew members got tours of the Aquatarium, the railway tunnel, and even got to take a quick discovery scuba lesson. Unfortunately our schedule didn’t leave us time for a deck tour, but I did run off in between locations to snap a few quick pics of their ship. @canadac3 #ExploreBrockville #C3 #1000islands #greatwaterway #brockville
