The St. Lawrence Seaway’s Summer Fun

The majestic St. Lawrence Seaway provides passage for huge ships from all over the world. People along its shores marvel at the passing ships, classic wooden skiffs, luxurious yachts, and family boats zigzagging through the water.

The small communities along its shores on both the Canadian and the American sides of the river, as well as parks and tourist attractions like Singer Castle (the setting for my novel, Devyn’s Dilemma), make this a great place to visit. Places like Wolfe Island, where my great great grandparents landed after emigrating from Ireland, and Cape Vincent, where my great grandparents became American citizens, are just two of the many communities here that are filled with history dating back to the 1600s.

It’s the stuff of movies and books, and since there are few of either one, I’ve written five novels set here. I hope to bring this area to life, tease your imagination, and bid you to come and visit. I may be a little biased, but I think everyone should have this beautiful piece of the world on your bucket list.
