We start the Trent-Severn Waterway
We really started this leg of the trip with a "bang!" Windy in the very first lock, and there we were, sideways. Not at all pretty... we straightened up,(after a small collision with the opposite lock wall,) and began the first of six locks that we'd do today. We improved in our locking skills by smaller increments than we would have liked. Our new swim platform now has a small bit of "character" on the port side. We did six locks in 7.3 miles, then we pulled over at the only place on the waterway, (so we hear) that has electricity included in the seasonal moorage fee we paid to Parcs Canada... in addition to electricity, (always a plus) it's quiet and lovely here just above lock 6. Tonight, there will be a blues concert in the park across the way. Ahhhh... moored in the shade, in a quiet place, with the blues in the background! Fabulous!
