Sleep is for Sissies

Apparently my assigned bunk on the boat is not well suited for my delicate frame, neither is the air mattress I tried last night. I try not to complain for long....the water is so beautiful.

We are headed to Kingston, and our route takes us through some 'narrow water'. It is so relaxing.

The locks are imposing from way down here. Good thing this boat is a rental.

Cast Off

My Aunt Chris made a delicious breakfast for us all, Nummy. Even Indie had some egg.

Orientation This boat is big. We were set off my 10am and we lost within minutes of leaving the dock. Sign are few and far between on the open water. Binoculars have been glued to someones face at all times. No worries, I am sure Kingston will be easy enough to find.

I have relinquished my Captain, and subsequent First Officer assignments in favour of being a deck hand. Ropes and locks are more my thing. That sounds much more exotic than I intended. I will assist the Captain when entering an exiting the Canal locks. I will do so with ropes.

Indie got comfy quick. He has taken on no official role. Slacker.

Boat Trip!

Apparently I have agreed to go on a boat trip with my family. Several members of my family in fact. All of us on a small boat for an eternit...a week. I have agreed to go on said adventure if Indie could join us.

So here we are. Home for a week

I am not really complaining. It will be fun. It is actually a recreation of a trip my uncle, aunt, husband and I took a few years ago. A cruise down the Rideau Canal in a houseboat. The trip this time is much more adventurous.

Tonight we sleep. Tomorrow we cruise.
