Hi ,
On the 28th we left Peterborough at 9:05am and locked up all day with 3 houseboats - scary !! It took us til 3pm to get there doing 7 locks . Long tough day !! We had a couple of bers to rest and then supper and a walk .
We were up and ready to leave at 9am heading for Young's Point lock , Burrliegh Falls , Lovesick and on to Buckhorn for the night arriving at 12:20pm . We were off to Aldoro's Pizza for lunch - Great as always . At night on a windy rainy night a houseboat had a campfire on the top and some boaters had a fire in a fire pit near the boat - strong smoke smell . It rained a lot at night .
On the the 30th we left Buckhorn on a sunny morning for Bobcaygeon arriving at 9:20am and were surprised to find a spot with power . Soon the lock area was full of houseboats trying to get through the lock . Every company has all there boats leave the same day and no one is very good at driving - real " shit show ". Internet was supplied by cable cable free . Laura and Claudio were here for drinks .
On the 31st Lori walked over to the Bigley shoe store while I showered and vacuumed the boat . Lots of houseboats all day . The Kawaratha Voyager cruise boat is staying overnight so they need the entire gray line from the blue line on - there is a lot of scrambling for spots . I talked a lot to Randy , a boater who was an engineer and knows a lot about solar panels and battery chargers and a lot of stuff . He says to call and he will help me out . We also met Daryl and his wife who are trying to retire out of the furnature business - we met in 2008 .
On Sept 1st we got a pumpout and then locked through and headed for Fenlon Falls arriving at 12:45pm but it took us til 2:45pm to get a spot with power and water - had to wait for day boaters to leave . Lot of day boaters and sea doo's all the time .
the 2nd was a rainy drizzley day , we did laundry and I washed the boat , movies . We went for a walk after supper . The 3rd was a cool day and I worked on the synchronizer and Lori fixed some drawer liners , and movies and walking . On the 4th the lock people let us stay another night as it is so windy and cold . We went for a walk and and toured Cdn Tire and Home Hardware . After supper we went for another walk around town .
