Aug 20, 2012 - Merrickville, Smiths Falls, Kingston Mills

From Ottawa to Kingston Ontario there are some 40-odd locks. Too much work for retired folks. But we totally enjoyed this leg of our trip. Acquaintances (fellow travelers) warned that it would be boring, monotonous. It wasn't. Not one bit. Different strokes we suppose. We discovered the 126 miles of the Rideau Canal was built for military purposes but ended up not be used for that at all. It turns out to be a playground for Canadians and international visitors alike. All along the canal there are some of the nicest campgrounds, towns,...

But we filled anyway in Watertown because we suspect it's going to be more expensive in Ontario when we get there. The big event on this day was getting x-rayed going back into Canada. This process required us to exit the motorhome and wait for them to do some picture taking. We got waved on so I guess we're OK still. By about 4:00 we had arrived in Smiths Falls...

Roaming through 2008

Oct 7, 2007 - Pembroke - Smiths Falls

Sunshine & blue skies today! The red in the trees is becoming more and more evident and even the ground cover in places is red. We follow the Trans Canada along the Ottawa River, close to the Quebec border to the town of Arnprior where we turn south on Hwy 15 to Smiths Falls.
