We're having our annual sailboat race here, Swiftsure. They are passing Sooke now & the rain is pounding down!

People around here jokingly call it Driftsure . It doesn,t look like they got too far so far! No wind!

I've always lived by the water! 

I saw this in my hometown news. https://www.thewhig.com/opinion/columnists/kingston-once-a-key-shipping-point-on-the-great-lakes

Hey, thanks for that, Bob! I'll have to visit the Pump House.

When we moved here, we lived in a brand new apartment building on Elevator Bay (named for the grain elevator that was torn down). At Point Frederick you can visit Fort Frederick, a Martello tower set in an earthen fortification. The current Kingston Harbour is home to a marina for local and visiting boaters. And we have Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, home to the sailing events of the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games.

Kingston claims to be Canada's first capital. Well, it was the capital of the United Province of Canada - 1841 to 1844. And City Hall was not the parliament building, nor was it intended to be.

Unfortunately, a developer, Jay Patry, bought the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes and ended up kicking the museum off the property, and it is now without a permanent home.
