Hi, glad you’re here! I spent a decade of summers at the 1000 Islands in the ’60s and still love 1000 Islands boating today. On my site, I share recollections of the past and things I find interesting about the present around Clayton NY, Ganonoque, Alexandria Bay, Grindstone Island, and anywhere else in the 1000 Islands that I hear about.
So here are some conversation starters… Do you recall what family-themed adventure park was popular near Alexandria Bay? The yellow restaurant that sat near the coal docks in Clayton? The name of the American Boat Line tour boats (and do they exist today)? What’s missing from Calumet Island that was there in the ’60s? This, and more awaits!
I’d love to hear what you like about the 1000 Islands today, and what you recall from the past by leaving a comment on any of my posts. I’m also on Twitter
P.S. I also run a site for metal detecting if you are interested in that hobby
