After leaving Heart Island we continued through a Thousand Islands many of which were inhabited. The houses ranged from luxury homes to summer homes.
Gary and I decided at the current price of real estate we could afford this island for our "dream home".
After visiting the Thousand Islands we made our way to Peterborough where we left the boat for just over a week so that we could attend our nephew's wedding and baby's baptism in Las Vegas. We met up with David and planned to visit Bryce Canyon and Grand Canyon after the wedding.
It was great meeting Brittany's family and seeing all of the Johneys together. Baby Wesley was adorable. We saw him for 3 days in a row and I do not think he cried more that 15 secs and that was because he wanted his bottle. He is only 2.5 months old and appears to be getting ready to cut a tooth. His little legs were so strong he could almost stand with you holding him very lightly under his arms. Wesley was ring bearer at his parents wedding and was carried by the Matron of Honour.

The wedding went perfectly followed by a nice reception. The happy couple are honeymooning in Disneyworld, Florida.
David, Gary and I spent an evening looking at the sights and sounds of Las Vegas. Boy, has it changed since I was there 20+ years ago. For one thing, hotels are no longer cheap, neither are meals.
We visited Hoover Dam very quickly one evening when returning from a trip. The water level was significantly lower than it was when I last visited. The area that is white around the lake is where the water level has dropped.
A couple of interesting tidbits:
- the temp in Las Vegas was 107 degrees one day with low humidity
- trailers can pull 2 additional trailers. How do they parallel park them? I have trouble parallel parking my car. I believe that only certain states allow this type of haulage.
