We headed out this morning around 7 am. It was about an hour long ride to the next lock, but we like moving early, especially on sunny, warm days. We ate cereal on the way. We'd have to wait there for an hour or so, but we could walk the dogs and talk to neighbors.
Besides, one of our looper pals on United 771 was having tooth pain and had a dentist appointment in Bobcageon, beyond our destination. We thought we'd be his placeholder if he got there on time. They just missed the first lock, but caught up with us on the next one. As You Wish and we just moved aside and let them get going.

We arrived around 1 pm, and were given a spot below the lock. Houseboats lined the walls above. Apparently, vacationers pick up their boats on Monday in Bobcageon, but only travel a small distance or anchor out. Then they start to spread out over the Trent-Severn Waterways, swimming, fishing, and vacationing, and they clog the nearest town walls on Tuesday. Which is today.
With about a foot to spare on either side.
