I am retired and exploring the world on foot, by canoe and kayak. You see and experience much more this way. No luxury resorts on some tropical beach for me.

Out of the mists of time. The British ship, the Royal George rounds the west end of Amherst Island in the re-enactment of the war of 1812. It was 7 km. away at this time. This actual event occurred on November 9, 1812 while it was being chased by 6 American gun boats. It sailed into Kingston along the north shore in the middle of the night. On November 10 1812, American gun boats pounded it in what is now down town Kingston, inflicting substantial damage to it and some houses.

Would you drink the Bath water? This water treatment plant in Bath makes it very pure and safe. The painting on the wall depicts the American invasion on November 9, 1812 at this site. The Americans took the schooner "Two Brothers" for ransom, burned it near Collins Bay. (see the right side of the painting) No compensation has been given to date. We continue to patiently wait.
