There are so many interesting old buildings in Kingston including the buildings of St. Mary’s Cathedral. See more of today’s shots on panoramio: fire escape and brick, rear of apartments, quiet patio outside hospital, and rear of furniture store.

For a fun evening, we headed to Prince Edward County to see a play by the Festival Players at Rose Hall Run Vineyards and enjoy the view of the grapes and nearby fields.
