July 13, 2015 – Young’s Point, Lock 27 to Bobcaygeon, Lock 32 – 33.7 statute miles traveled

We were on our way by 0730 to make the 8.5 sm to Burleigh Falls (Lock 28). Once again it was a beautiful day with temperatures in the 80s. We cruised through four locks this day as lock 29 does not exist. We were able to reach our goal and moor at Bobcaygeon by 1:30 PM so we had the rest of the day to relax and tour the town.

Kinda hard to go astray.  Also touchy when passing a boat coming the opposite direction.

We made a run for supplies and then I carried them back to the boat while Vicki enjoyed one of her favorite pastimes of browsing in the kind of store I have very little interest in. Back at the boat I relaxed upon the chaise lounge on the bridge deck napping and watching the scene all around me.

Soon after Vicki returned a boat locked through and came past us that people back in Campbellford had mentioned to us. It was a couple that lived in Bobcaygeon and had a 1973 Grand Banks 32. I waved at them and shouted greetings. They stopped the boat and we talked between boats for a while. Then they went on.

We were still enjoying the weather in the cockpit when the same couple came by the boat on foot this time. It turns out they had taken their boat to its mooring and then driven back to talk to us. We had a great time for the next hour swapping stories about our boats and then travel and great places in Canada to visit. The time went by rapidly and we really did enjoy meeting them and swapping stories.
