As usual, Day 1 is a travel day. We had left around noon from Ottawa. We made a stop the new Kingston Tesla Supercharger (there are 2 at this site) to recharge the car as well for quick lunch at Panera Bread. I had their pick 2 with BLT with avocado and the broccoli mac and cheese. Pretty standard. No complaints. After a quick diaper change for the baby, we’re off again.
It wasn’t too long until we made it to the Kingston-Wolfe Island ferry terminal. It was a very organized set-up with marked spots and queues onto the ferry. The ferry is free and leaves every hour on the hour from Kingston. We arrived at the perfect time and within a few minutes, we got onto the 3pm ferry without any issues.
We got a perfect spot at the front and had a nice view of the St. Lawrence River. The baby wasn’t a fan of the new ferry experience but didn’t seem to mind it too much after some cuddles and fresh air. After a 20-minute ride, we made it onto Wolfe Island! Due to an ongoing ferry dock rehabilitation project, we arrived at their Dawson Point Dock instead. There wasn’t much at this dock so we just kept driving towards our accommodation at the east end of the Island. The roads seem pretty quiet. First impression: the island was filled with wind turbines, corn fields and many cows.
After about 20 minutes of driving, we arrived at our Airbnb. It was a spacious waterfront property with a great outdoor space. Unfortunately, the weather was not great today for spending time outdoors. Hope we could enjoy some time outside during this trip.
After settling in, we made some simple pizza for dinner using pre-made pizza dough from Farm Boy and some simple ingredients. It was actually very good, given we had forgotten half of our pizza ingredients at home! It was a long travel day so we called it a night after dinner.
