Our regional tourism organization, The Great Waterway, has embarked on a 26 day adventure from Kingston to Cornwall. They are joined by co-founder and co-owner of Improbable Escapes, HIPSTORY, and the Kingston Collective, Melissa, and actor and executive producer of Stained Tie Films Ltd, Scott.
Melissa writes about her trip to the Aquatarium, Skywood, Fulford Place, a sneak peak of our Railway Tunnel, and more!
“I’m a huge animal lover, so I get really excited to see animals regardless of if they are land or water dwellers. It made my day when we started off the morning with a visit to the Aquatarium in Brockville. Scott and I raced on antique row boats (I obviously won) and then we began to explore the aquarium. There were so many creatures, but my favourite animals were the otters! They were incredibly adorable and it was a fun experience to watch them get fed. I would never have known, but the Aquatarium also has a high ropes course! At first, I thought it was designed for children as it was themed to resemble a ship, but as soon as I started climbing, I realized that it was actually fairly difficult! It was a good challenge. Similar to Skywood, it was a lot of fun and it makes you feel preeeeetty invincible!”
