Hiiii from Fenelon Falls, Ontario! We are docked today due to the wind…16 mph today. Not exactly ideal boating conditions.
We left Toronto a few days earlier under heavy humidity but gorgeous skies.
If there is one lasting memory from Toronto (aside from the humidity) its the food. Every restaurant had its own spin on dining out & we left each eatery completely impressed with the apps, entrees and cocktails. **Restaurant tags below…but the Sunday Brunch Buffet at Cibo Wine Bar is hands down THE best!
We docked at Marina Quay West – it wasn’t the most luxurious marina we’ve visited, but it was downtown in the heart of the action and allowed us to walk to virtually everything. I relished in the fact that there *happened* to be a great nail salon across the street aaaaaand we even got haircuts. (this was a bit of a stressor, and i’m still planing (hoping) to get back to my beloved stylist in Baltimore for my color, but in the meantime, I wasn’t scalped and my hair is feeling so much healthier!) 💇🏼
So! Currently, we are on a mission to get to the Georgian Bay…which includes dozens of small towns and another 41 locks! FORTY ONE LOCKS. (You guys know how I l.o.v.e. the locks.) The one below happens to be picture worthy in more ways than one. Its a hydraulic lift lock AND its also the tallest lock in the WORLD. They essentially have you drive your boat into a bath tub and then lift you 65 feet into the air. Its a joyride of sorts and we were able to capture some fun GoPro pictures thanks to the friendly lock crew.
The Trent Severn Waterway has been littered with super small/quaint towns…some even with wi-fi 💁🏼 and we are pushing through with 8 hours days and lock after lock after lock. Thankfully, the scenery doesn’t suck!
We can’t wait to update you from the Georgian Bay – we hear it is insanely beautiful!
*oh – so I think I have pinched femoral nerve due to running?? Its miserably painful and sometimes *someone* makes fun of me for how feeble it makes me walk! 😬 So that’s fun too! 🙄 Any suggestions or information on how to remedy this would be AWESOME!
