Camelot Island, day 1

Monday 8/19/13
Here we are in Camelot, yes, Camelot. This is one of the Thousand Islands in the St. Lawrence Seaway near Kingston, ON. We arrived after a short 25 mile ride from Kingston. On the way, our chart plotter stopped functioning, but we were able to use our backup chart on the laptop. Why is it so important to have charts in this area, you ask. Well the bottom is very rocky and unforgiving, so we definitely had to watch our depth. We found one mooring ball available, so Ron and I took it because it had a nearby dinghy dock for Duke.
  Jeanne and Kenny went to look for an available dock (the docks are very small only holding a couple of boats) but they were all taken.  So they returned and rafted up to our boat.  That made it more fun anyway, because we were able to talk as good neighbors do.
