With the temperatures soaring it has been mighty nice to have a little outdoor escape hatch, in the form of our cute, albeit rickety, rear deck. The deck faces east and we can see the curved white roof of the K-ROCK Centre hovering above our grocery store (green roof).
The afternoons are blissfully shaded and we have a great breeze because of the nearby waterfront and our height on the second storey.
In the distance to the left (north) you can see the red roof of Fort Frontenac (c. 1783) that is the home to the Canadian Land Force Command and Staff College. On the other site of the fort is the Cataraqui River, which drains into the St. Lawrence River.
