Oh, the sun turned to rain when we stopped for the night. That is quite common on East Coast and in Canada as of right now. We went through 8 locks today so it is time to stop for the night and have an adult beverage! Can you tell Jan wrote this one?
After a quiet night staying at lock 40 we were on our way to Orillia which is only 18 1/2 miles. We crossed Lake Simcoe which is the largest lake on the Trent Severn. Luckily, the water was calm and the winds were light.
