Happy Canada Day!

Canada Day is July 1.  Today we are in celebrating with Craig and Maureen in Trent, reunited with fellow Loopers HMS Vagabond, and Houlegan again. Surrounded  by Red and White, tonight there will be fireworks!

Fish on! Rick & Craig

Life is good when you are fishing! And there is nothing like a good old fashioned competition – especially when it’s the smallest fish that wins!

Changing Signs – when it is critical that you stay between the navigational beacons, we appreciated the reminder that the colors had changed, in other words it was NOT red right returning.

We continue to travel with Ray & CarylHoulegan Again, awesome boating buddies!

When Exhale finished the Rideau Canal we had completed 79 locks (Fort Myers, Florida through Kingston, Ontario).

Some of the locks reminded us of filling-up and draining a really really big  bathtub!

Smiths Falls – the walls of Smiths Falls were truly daunting!

These bugs tried to hitch a ride, without permission, of course. They ended their journey in a unique, tidy pattern …
