Red Horse Lake, Ontario

Red Horse Lake is located in the Heart 1000 Islands area of Ontario, about half an hour from the "CANADIAN GATEWAY TO THE THOUSAND ISLANDS", Gananoque, which is a charming little town off of the St. Lawrence River. Lizzy and I(surprisingly) made the journey to Red Horse Lake on Friday evening after work. At only a 5 hour drive from the Philadelphia area, it is a great place to visit for a vacation.
Lizzie had planned on making the trip early Saturday morning to visit her parents and daughter who were vacationing there for two weeks. She had also planned on taking several of her sons. I was planning on spending the entire weekend with my own kids. However, plans changed, and none of the boys wanted to go when it was time to leave. Also, she had changed her mind about the departure time and decided to leave Friday after work instead of Saturday morning. I changed my plans because I did not want her to make the trip by herself and I saw the disappointed look on her face when the boys cancelled. A decision I am thankful I made, because I look forward to making the trip to Red Horse Lake again.

The above picture is Lizzie sitting on an Adirondack Chair on the cottage porch looking out at Red horse Lake mid Saturday morning.

I have been fishing out of those cabins for 13 years. I would reconize them anywhere!

We were planning on going up for several weeks. Acutally went up early this year to test the Internet access and found there to be an acceptable signal in the cabin we reserved. However, due to illness of Lizzies father, we decided to forgo the trip to Red Horse Lake this year.
We however, will be planning another trip to the lake early in the fall.
