Hi,
We were out waiting for the lock at 8:50am and entered the lock at 9:10am and made our way to the Carillon Lock up the Ottawa River and locked thru and arrived at Hawkesbury at 1:45pm to find out that there was no power again this year , disappointed as the Mayor told us she would get power there . We walked into town and shopped at Giant Tiger and returned to the boat for supper and a movie .
We were up early and headed for Lafaivre for fuel and a pump out arriving at 8am and got fuel but no Pump out as theirs was not working . On to Lac Leamy casino in Gatineau . We stopped at Rockcliffe Marina for a pump out and theirs will be fixed in the morning . Pierette came to the boat for a visit and drove us to the Super C for groceries and beer . We then went to the casino for supper and Lori played the slots !!!
In the morning we got a pump out and headed for the locks at Ottawa and locked up to the wall and say Gary and Nancy's boat .
We did a bit of walking and the market then had Gary and Nancy over for docktails .
On the 16th we went shopping at Metro and Shoppers for water and Lori's prescription . We then took Garry and Nancy to the market for lunch , shopping and back to the boat . After some more walking we had supper and Gary and Nancy were at the boat to say goodbye - great to meet them .
We waved goodbye to Gary and Nancy as they passed . A bit of a lazy day and them we walked to the square and the parliament buildings for a look see . Julie picked us up and took us the their home for dinner and a great social time until 11pm and took us back to the boat .
On the 18th we ended up at metro for buttermilk ,eggs and liverwurst and I made my muffin mix after we defrosted the fridge . It has been hot today . We had supper and watched tv .
On the 19th we ended up talking to an RCMP officer and he told us how to get tickets to tour the commons and senate - go and get the tickets in the new reception area between the Parliament Buildings and the West wing - got tickets for the senate right then and for the west block in the morning . Great !! That night we went to the light show at the Parliament Buildings . Great show .
On the 20th we were up early and had the tour of the west block where parliament for the next 10 to 15 years . After we stopped at McDonald's for coffee and milk from Metro and to Dollarama and back to the boat .
On the 21st we walked the market and later to shoppers . Lazy day and cards .
We are leaving Ottawa tomorrow .
