The second event of Fathers Day was a trip down to Kingston for a tour of the now defunct but historic Kingston Penitentiary. Thanks fully, they now run tours, which are heavily booked.
When Shauna asked us if we were interested, she noted that they were being booked quickly, and indeed there were no walkups for our tour.
We didn't really book it with Fathers Day in mind, but it really made for a nice, memorable day for me after that great start at the restaurant for breakfast.
I will probably post more photos and more detail later, but for now, let me hit you with a few photos, all done in an old fashioned albumen processing style because the history of this penitentiary goes back almost 200 years.
So, without much further comment ...

It was an interesting tour of what is arguably Canada's most famous prison, certainly Ontario's.
