Here they come!!! (over the shoulder of the CTV
The kayakers arrived in Hogs Back Locks ahead
of schedule, anxious to have a bite to eat for
lunch and make their final voyage into Ottawa.
Several members of the Road Crew have joined
the kayakers for this last leg of the trip, and
those who are left have gone ahead to the Ottawa
Locks to prepare for the kayakers final arrival!!
Marc, the Ottawa Locks Master, was terrific in
helping arrange for the top lock to stay filled
for the kayakers to cross the finish line at 5:30
pm. There we also met up with the CTV-CJOH live
remote camera crew who were getting ready to film
the grand event!
[ Thank you to everyone we've met working the
locks this week -- you've all been great!]
