Greetings from Gananoque

Welcome to Gananoque, Ontario


One of the beautiful bed and breakfasts of Gananoque

The Victoria Rose Inn
Our big expedition for my trip to the St. Lawrence was a wonderful day spent in Gananoque, just across the river. If Anne of Green Gable didn't live in Prince Edward Island, I think she would have been very happy in this beautiful town.
The weather was idyllic and we had a great day. We had lunch at a beautiful inn on the river, spent time seeing the turn of the century homes, visited the town museum, ate ice cream and even started my Christmas shopping -- all in the company of two of my favorite people. I couldn't ask for more.
Wishing you idyllic weather, ice cream and the company of your favorite people for this holiday weekend.

Oh Buttercup!
I can't believe how beautiful this quaint B&B is even the name: The Victoria Rose Inn is just beautiful. Love the scenery. Did you go on one of the boats and site see? Was this your first time there, or have you been here before? Already started Christmas shopping? Oh honey, I thought I was the only one who started this early. With 7 grandkids it takes most of the summer to get everything bought. Then we don't have such a big expense at Christmas. I got smarter the bigger our family got. Now what did you buy? It's okay I can keep a secret, I won't tell. Thanks for sharing sweetie. Stop by soon, as I so love it when you do. Country hugs and Love, Sherry
