UPDATE: Thanks to the generosity of our Seniors Group, which is subsidizing the cost of the bus, we now have a greatly reduced price!

Join us for another outing with Martin Luther Church Ottawa – this time to Rockport, Ontario! Including a return bus trip from our church, a 1000 islands cruise, and a walk through Rockport, this is sure to be a fun adventure. There are 52 spots to fill as soon as possible!

Itinerary: We will meet on Sunday, June 4, 2023 at 8:00 am at Martin Luther Church Toronto and take the bus to Rockport, Ontario (320 km), a 3- hour drive. We plan to stop en route at the Big Apple Experience Rest Area (262 Orchard Rd, Colborne, ON K0K 1S0) for approximately 30 minutes for a washroom break and an opportunity to purchase a second breakfast or lunch. Once there, we will take a boat cruise (about 1 hour) in the 1000 Island waterway on the St. Lawrence River.

Besides the boat cruise, we will stroll around the small town of Rockport (20 Front St, Rockport, ON K0E 1V0) —with its picturesque church from 1891— and have a picnic together (all are encouraged to bring their own food for lunch). We will then arrive back at the church around 6:00 pm, depending on traffic.
