Hi ,
We were up to the Foreign Exchange for some US money and then left Ottawa at 8:58am heading for Black Rapids . We arrived and there were only 2 boats , more French !! AND just starting and will not end til we get to Kingston . Our water tank was all but empty so I asked the lock master if we could fill up and he said no . We have always been able to . So we hauled water in pails and jugs and filled the boat that way . Where there is a will there is a way .
We were off the next morning to Burritts Rapids we hope . On the way there we were passed by 9 French boats up on plane within 20 ft of us rocking us and another boat and the Kawartha Voyager - a cruise boat was also rocked very badly - VERY Bad Boaters !!! We arrived at Burritts Rapids . We visited with some loopers and stayed overnight.
We were off in the morning hoping to stay in Merrickville but there was no room so were told we could tie up on the blue line with power at Kilmarnock lock . Great place out in the middle of no where and were later joined by Mark and Parisa for evening docktails , great visit .
The next day we headed for Smiths Falls and laundry and tie up for 2 or 3 days - laundry done we did find a place to tie up . We met Scott and Meredith again and went to " My Place " for supper . Outstanding !! Movies at night .
On the 26th we walked to Walmart , Cdn Tire and Independent shopping and joined Scott and Meredith and 4 other loopers for pre supper drinks . I had seen Mark and Parisa in the morning and got the wifi password so we had movies .
On Saturday we walked to the Museum and market 2.1 kms away for something to do . We are leaving tomorrow hopefully for Lower Beveridges lock .
