Re: Best Route: Great Lakes to East Coast?
Couple of places to liveaboard in the Toronto area for the winter - Port Credit Marina and Bluffer's Park in Scarborough. The latter is in a gorgeous park at the base of the Scarborough Bluffs but you really would want a car since it is a bit isolated. Forget the name but there is a marina with winter liveaboards in the Toronto inner harbour. Incredible location to take advantage of the city amenities but they do have (or had) a long wait list.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
