The Canadian countryside was breathtaking.
You are then at the bottom of Lock 12. The picture looks almost exactly the same!
The town is really nice. We had an early dinner and will explore more tomorrow. This picture I took when we first arrived.
Not long after we got settled, a cruise boat, Kawartha Voyageur arrived and tied up to the waterfront on the opposite side of the river. It will go through the locks to Peterborough, Ontario. That is a neat trip for folks that don't own a boat to do this cruise.
In Canadian currency, there is a two dollar coin. The one dollar coin is often called a loonie. The two dollar coin is often called a twonie. The center of the twonie has an enrgraving of a polar bear. The artist was a resident of the Trent Hills area, where Campbellford is, so the Canadian Mint deemed Campbellford the home of the two dollar coin and a giant 20 foot replica was created to commemorate this occasion. It is in the Old Mill Park where we are docked.
Twelve locks down and 33 more to go and they are some unusual ones, so stay tuned. Tomorrow, we will explore Campbellford some more before moving on.
