Trent Severn-Days 2&3

July 26 & 27

This waterway is simply stunning. The lock passages have been totally uneventful as they are quite small. Only 2 boats the size of Whisky Business can lock through at a time. Some channels are a bit narrow as evidenced by the photo below.

This guy found his own shoal. We know this is a shoal because it does not have a ____ growing on it???

Double lock.

After 5 locks yesterday we tied up to a wall in Campbellford, Ontario. Our great buds, Deb and John had waited a few days there for us to catch up.

Since John was instrumental in getting us going again when our water pump went south on us Debbie and I had a special bottle of Woodford made for the Neal’s from a photo I had taken of their boat.

One of the 18 locks we have been through in the last 3 days.

Livin’ the dream.

Some cool summer homes.

When was the last time you were in a blow up pool.

The last few days have not been long ones but locking through can be stressful. My able bodied crew takes a much needed break.

Beautiful home and boat house.

How ’bout a fixer upper.

Jeez, another 6 MPH speed limit posting.

Love seeing this guy!

Deb says she wants a home on the water…

John took this video of a double lock we went through today. You can see WB in the lock.

HA! Gotta love it!

I mentioned in the last post the method used to open the locks on the Trent Severn. The 2 Debs were walking to see the Loopers on Mo Whisky and when they crossed the bridge, Debbie asked if she could open the lock doors for 2 Loop boats in the lock chamber. Here’s Debbie making here debut as a Trent Severn Waterway Lock Hand!

  1. The pictures are just beautiful. Enjoy seeing the locks, I found the locks interesting while river cruising in German and wondered why the rivers in our country weren’t used in this manner here. Thanks to your blog I have seen they are, I realize these are in Canada but others have been here. Continue to enjoy and appreciate the journey.
