Kayaking to lunch in Rockport, 1000 Islands
Someone suggested paddling to the Boathouse Restaurant in Rockport for lunch. Our group of kayakers from Ottawa, Ontario seemed to like the idea. Reservations were made for 10 people at noon. We launched from the beautiful and convenient Mallorytown Landing boat launch at 10:00 a.m. and tracked southwest along the mainland towards Rockport. That’s taking a right from the boat launch if you don’t have a kayak compass, but I certainly recommend one.
