I drove approx 250 miles from Niagara falls to reach this incredible beauty of Nature. This exists between Canada & USA border. All the mansions here are connected by Hydro cables for power and other resources.

Day 1

Each island is approx about an +-acre in the bay. Which is surrounded by the midst of nature.  Yet the water is very clean and they employ a special system to maintain the waters. The water is in emerald green color in most of the places and in copper Nitrate blue in few places. This is a crystal clear water and where all little magical islands exists so proudly.

Emerald green water
