Thousand Islands











This Labor Day weekend I spent on the St. Lawrence River in the town of Clayton. Clayton was voted the Best Small Town in NY by Coastal Living magazine. It’s entire downtown is a National Register of Historic Places. This trip was my first introduction to the Thousand Islands region, which was absolutely lovely and bustling with people out on the water in their motor boats and sailboats. The town hosts its annual Antique Wooden Boat Show every August, and during the rest of the year they have open a wonderful Antique Boat Museum. It was amazing to see such pristinely restored boats of the great boatmakers Lyman, Chris-Craft, Gar Wood, and Riva.

We were fortunate enough to grow up spending summers on an old Century and an old Chris-Craft! Great old ad!
