Lay day in Kingston: 1000 Islands Cruise Day 3

At the open-air market in the town square, which first started in 1801, we make out like bandits: fresh raspberries, fresh strawberries, sweet peaches, golden corn-on-the cob, green beans and Ontario garlic. From the Wolfe Island Bakery, we purchase a Red River baguette, wild berry muffins, awesome brownies, pecan tarts, butter tarts, raspberry and blueberry tarts.

Facing the square is the Block & Cleaver, a small butcher shop where we purchase summer sausage, Black Forest ham, a chunk of kolbassa and ribeye steak.

What are you saying, that we cruise to eat? It does sound like it, that’s for sure.

In the evening, we take in a concert at the refurbished Grand Theatre. Renowned Cape Breton fiddler Natalie Mac Master plays like a demon and dances, too, with a five-month bulge in her belly. The audience gasps in amazement when Natalie announces that Nathaniel Smith, the long-haired virtuoso on the cello, is only 14 years old.
