Day 15 Thursday May 26 Trenton to Campbellford

Mill Park sculptureTim Horton's provided breakfast and we were off at 8:30AM. We got to lock 1 at 9:05AM but had to wait on the blue line while they emptied the lock. A 'transit pass' cost $C156 but you can get a refund for the 7% GST tax. A transit pass is a one way ticket to Georgian Bay.Then it was lock after lock with only one long stretch of 11 miles. We learned at Lock 9 that because the 11th lock is a double lock you have to be there by 3:45 to get through. We made it at 3:40PM and got through by 4:00PM. Cambellford has changed since the last time we were here 30 years ago with nearly all the old factories torn down beside the canal. Mill Park where we are moored contains a huge 'sculpture' of the $2 Canadian coin (see photo). It seems that the artist that designed the polar bear on the back of the coin lives here. We walked downtown and got a rhubarb pie at Dooher's Bakery. Tonight we had dinner at Caper's. Tomorrow we will have to change our plan to reach Peterborough as it will take too long and we won't be able to make the last lock just below the city before closure. We will take an extra day and stop at Hastings.
