On Saturday we went on a boat tour of the 1000 Island Castles.
We were in Canada for a few minutes. It was my first time there.
We were able to take a tour of Boldt Castle on Heart Island.
The castle is beautiful. Here is the story behind this magnificent place.
"Boldt Castle , on Heart Island was to be the testimony of the unsurpassed love of a man for his wife. The magnificence of the structure was to be equalled only by George Boldt's adoration of Louise, who was the love of his life and reason for the construction of such an elaborate summer home. The finest of artists, craftsman, and materials were sought for the work which was well underway when tragedy struck. Mrs Boldt was dead, and a telegram arrived ordering all work to stop. Three hundred workmen dropped their tools and left the island never to return.The sculptures, Italian mantle pieces, imported tapestries, and fine furniture never reached their intended places in this ill-fated, melancholy mansion. Today, visitors wander in awe through the huge, empty rooms, imagining the luxury, splendor and gaiety that might have been."
These chairs were 100's of years old. I forgot the history that it was behind them, but they were pretty neat.
This tree picture reminds me of photograpy art. I think it looks like a "V."
