The Final Day of Our East Coast Trip ~ Gananoque to Home

We started from Gananoque ON with some pretty ambitious plans today.  First item on our list was to visit Fort Henry in Kingston ON.  There is a special promotion right now that we were happy to take advantage of.  We paid full price for our visit to Upper Canada Village at the beginning of our trip and that allowed us free passes to Fort Henry.  It works the other way around as well. 

Another thing I learned is that if the entry fees to all the National Historic Sites we visited total to more than the cost of a season pass, we might be entitled to a refund of the overage.  I'll be adding up our fees and if we meet the criteria, we'll see if I'll get the refund over the cost of a season pass.  I'll let you know how that goes.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the fort is very interesting.  I'm so glad we went. 

Hold on tight, Hal.  You really don't want to fall in!

We bought some of these delicious chocolate chip cookies for the ride home.

We spent so much time at Fort Henry that we decided to skip the letterboxing and try to make it through Toronto before rush hour.  The 401 was a zoo as usual in the GTA but we survived it and made it home before 7:30 pm.  I had called Tim to put a chicken casserole in the oven for us . . . so we came home to a lovely hot supper. 

It is so nice to be home.  And we got to meet our new neighbours.
