9 September 2012 Along the Saint Lawrence

It was a perfect day for late summer flowers and visiting the water lots of times. Our day started with a cache at a community park in Watertown and moved along the water. Our first cache by the water was at Three Mile Bay.

Playing Tourists at Tibbets Point Lighthouse

Ali Signing the visitor register

I've never seen a "Fog Horn Building" before, but that was what the sign on the side of the buidling stated.

The views were wonderful. This was a small public boat launch where a number of people had gathered to enjoy the sunny afternoon and fish. This is a good spot to pass the day and watch the ships

Cedar Point State Park

I didn't expect to find too many ice cream places still open along the way. This one across from Cedar Point State Park was a perfect spot for a rest on our journey. The Byrne Dairy ice cream was very good and the deck was a nice place to rest for a few minutes.

Keewaydin State Park was a favorite stop on our journey. The park isn't large, but the caches were better than park and grabs. The park also boasts outstanding glacial grooves and some nice views along the water. This afternoon it also sported more than a few flickers along the trails.

Kring Point State Park

We made our last stop at Jacques Cartier State Park. The park is named for the explorer who discovered the Saint Lawrence. The water was calm on this quiet evening. After the cache we headed back to Watertown and a quiet dinner at a nice Italian restaurant.
