Anyone recognize this anchorage?

This is one anchorage we both enjoy. It's quite popular and can be full but lovely all the same.

Welcome to our sail blog!
Chrissy & I have created this blog for those interested sailors who may be considering sailing to the 1000 Islands next summer, 2013.
If you have always wanted to vacation with your sailboat, but have never quite gotten around to the planning, now is your chance. Perhaps your reason is you don't quite have the confidence in your navigation skills, your vessel or your luck. Regardless of the reason any sailor will tell you sailing in a group makes sense. You are never left stranded. You are able to have someone familiar with the journey lead you to the best anchorages and suggest the best places to provision.
Some more experienced crew may wish to journey ahead, or languish behind for a day to meet up at another gunkhole on another day. No problem. While I'm at it - I should also mention - no charge - not from us - we're not trying to sell you anything. Though I understand the ads on this site are offered as a way to help pay for the blog - we have nothing to do with any of them.
That's it for now - feel free to comment - voice your intent or regret - and be sure to put your two cents in for when you're thinking of making your trip. We haven't chosen our dates yet, but we prefer late July. The water is warm enough for swimming and still deep enough to ensure we don't run aground (too often).
