Welcome to my hometown of Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

Because of Kingston's location it has always been a site of military importance and defense. There is Fort Henry and four Martello towers, which are now tourist attractions. When I was little, I lived across the road from one of them, Murney Tower. Now the house has been torn down and replaced with part of the Kingston General Hospital.

I don't remember ever seeing water in the moat around the Tower.
|Beside Murney Tower is this gazebo, a good place for a band or orchestra to play on a warm summer night. The windmills that you can see in the background are on Wolfe Island, about a 20-minute ferry ride away.|
