Today, we get really adventurous (for us) and decide to navigate our way to Rockport, Ontario (one of the few gas stations we can get the houseboat into) then south pasted the American/Canadian border and onto Heart Island, home of Boldt Castle.

Our houseboat adventure through the National Parks of the 1000 Islands in Canada and along the border of the U.S. begins. We are heading to Gananoque, Ontario to pick up the rented Houseboat from Houseboat Holidays, the only pet-friendly operator of its kind in the area.
