The Trent Severn Waterway is a 241-mile intricate inland system of rivers, lakes and canals connecting Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay. First nation tribes created the trails, river routes and portages along the valleys of the Severn and Trent Rivers. The official building of the waterway began in 1833.
It finally happened! About Lock 4 on the waterway out of nowhere, torrential rains: the first bad weather we have had in Canada. By the time we got to Lock six everything on the fly bridge and near the doorways, especially the carpets were soaked through. Our shoes, gloves and clothes were saturated even foul weather gear was not enough.
The rain subsided just as we were docking onto the last available slip. Our stern was in the channel, but the lockmaster said we were the last boat through for the night so we could stay in that precarious position. No argument from us!
Two other Looper boats were on the wall, Thunderbolt and Ceci Kay, time for hot showers and docktails on the sun dried picnic tables.
We were happy!
