Kingston trip..part uno

Recently, I joined my sister on a trip to Kingston and Ottawa, which are both beautiful cities (Ottawa being our lovely capital) and the two cities are only a few hours away from each other. They both feature wonderful architecture, lots of amazing limestone incorporated almost everywhere. We had a nice 5 day trip.
We stayed in a B&B our first few nights...The Belvedere...an historic house with many rooms.


They had a patio for breakfast...a wee too cold yet for that.

The lighting is nice, huh? love the green deco glass.

The parlour...
a corner of the parlour where we ate our breakie...


The front porch/sunroom..

The B& B was within walking distance of the downtown...saw these delightful posies in someone's window.

Stopped for tea at this tea house.

You go and choose whatever tea you like.....from hundreds of choices...very hard to decide but i chose caramel tea.

Nice little courtyard to a lunch place...
More downtown photos... (click to see a giant ice cream cone)


The store on the right was funny...note the name of shop. Lots of fun stuff in there.

(part deux in a few days)
