Night Cruise On The St. Lawrence River

Alexandria Bay Chamber Of Commerce:

The C.O.C.sent an open invitation to the community for their October 3rd Annual Sunset Fall Mixer Cruise.  Area businesses and restaurants offered complimentary Hors d'hoeuvres.  Uncle Sam Boat Tours very generously donated this free cruise along the majestic Saint Lawrence River.  This mixer was well attended and as usual the sunset cruise was breathtaking. 

As the sun disappeared, the islands became silhouettes against the background of the river.  The blinking red channel markers guided the cruise ship along our tour.  Standing on the top deck, I took video shots of the river view.  As the darkness took over, the well lit  Boldt Castle could be seen in the distance. As we moved closer,  the Grand Castle emitted a stunning iridescence.  A shining show piece at the end of a pleasant trip.
