6/13 Quiet day planning for the Trent Severn

Today was a down day.  We did boat errands, checked the water in the batteries, checked oil, filled the fresh water in our holding tanks, etc.  We walked into town to find a Canadian flag to fly as a courtesy flag along with our United States flag.  With that purchase complete, we headed for lunch. 

When the waitress went to clear John's plate, his knife fell off into the cup of ketchup, and ricocheted down the front of my top.  It all seemed to happen in slow motion.  After a quick run to the grocery store, we headed back to the boat.  The laundry is free here.  Thankfully, the ketchup stain was gone.  In the boaters lounge, I watched CNN waiting for my clothes to dry.  I am so saddened by the horrific terrorism in Orlando. 

Some boats headed out this morning and more arrived this afternoon.  Most will be doing the Trent Severn Waterway.  Tomorrow, we will begin the Trent Severn Waterway.  We will go 240 miles and through 45 locks on the way to Port Severn on Georgian Bay.  We set our lines for the most common locks although there are unique ones like,  Lock 44 the Big Chute Marine Railway.  The scenery and small towns are supposed to be fantastic. 

We have totally enjoyed the Trent Port Marina and the town of Trenton.
