We walked to the Cathedral here in Peterborough for Mass. Even though it was early, we were warm when we got there. After Mass, we walked to the Peterborough Lift Lock. As in other places along this voyage, I am always impressed with the art that you see along the way. Here at the Bell Telephone Building, doors with reliefs of a telephone, the first people, maple leafs and the lift lock were very detailed.

The plungers are huge. The locks make very little noise and the lifts move VERY quickly. The boats don't move around because the water movement is in the plungers. We watched some boaters going through and everyone on board was very relaxed and not having to work to fend off the lock wall.
