That’s a panorama picture. Trying out fancy phone features.
Yesterday I got through the Murray Canal, and picked up a season pass for the Parks Canada systems. Poked my nose into Trenton, but the fuel dock was closed, so continued down to Belleville, where I fueled up for a very reasonable $.699/l. Then noodled down to Deseronto, turned around and went back to Trenton and spent the night at Trent Severn Lock 1.
My basic plan has been to head east rather than north. But the Rideau Canal is not yet open, nor are the St Lawrence Seaway locks. The Trent Severn us open to Orillia, so that’s a nice side trip, if nothing else. Or I can head into Georgian Bay at some point. No bad options.
Yesterday’s weather was decent but unsettled. At one point a vicious wind squall came through. No rain but winds went from 5-35 knots very suddenly. Glad I wasn’t sailing. As it was I lost my hat while hanging onto the bimini. Went back for it.
Today I traveled through the first six locks with another boat, Steve and Jane on their new-to-them Sundancer 310. Locktenders say there have been six boats through so far. Don’t know whether that includes us or not. The locks are open from 10-3:30 and a problem with one lock caused a delay of a couple of hours. I stopped for the night at Glen Ross lock. Nice spot.
Tomorrow Miles and Brad are coming for a couple of days. Will meet them in Campbellford.
Today was the first warm day I’ve had. Here are some pics coming up today.
