This is the Trent Hills area of Canada. Many Canadians have summer cottages and fish camps in this region. Today is Saturday and we easily saw 1000 boats out fishing. But the area is so big that no one was really close to one another. They all seemed to have their favorite spots.
While crossing Rice Lake, we saw lots of fish jumping. We also saw a sea plane but I wasn't quick enough with my cell phone to get the picture.
A large portion of Rice Lake borders the Hiawatha First Nation Indian Reserve. The reserve is also bordered by the Otonabee River. The scenery here is just so peaceful.
We arrived the Peterborough Marina. We took on fuel and pump out. When we checked into the office, the office had a gift bag from the Peterborough Harbor Hosts, Freya Petersen and Don Bennett. Freya is known her jams. We got some strawberry jalapeno. I can't wait to try it. The rest of the package was filled with information about the trip all the way back to the states and gifts, like a key ring that has a twonie replica, where the center rotates. Don and Freya were walking the docks to meet all the loopers. They came aboard and shared some more knowledge of the area and answered many questions for us. It was easy to see how giving they are and how they won the Harbor Host award.
