Robin, Tom and family joined us for a trip down the Rideau Canal in Ottawa to Dow’s Lake for diesel, water and pump out.  After saying our so longs it was back to the matter at hand and on to the next set of locks here in the canal.

We now rest on a cute little area here in Long Island,  ON  along the Rideau.  We have managed to time our trip with a huge Quebec holiday, the construction holiday.  A lot of people get in their boats and travel the exact same route we are doing for the next week.  These  locks are going to be busy .  Presently we are the only English speaking boat in this spot.  Us and  7 French speaking boats.    We are hoping to be one of the first boats through the locks in the morning.  There are 3 here.
