Gananoque in the Thousand Islands

Here are a few random shots from my first six months of living in Gananoque which is pronounced Gan-a-nok-way, however to the locals it is known simply as Gan. The town is located on the north shore of the St Lawrence river in the Thousand Islands region of Ontario 28 Kms East of Kingston. Gananoque is an aboriginal name meaning 'Town on two rivers', the population is approximately 5200. The town saw some action in the war of 1812 when American forces stormed a supply depot in the 'Raid on Gananoque'.
