Welcome back to our ninth
consecutive year of Kayaking for Cancer!
Once again "the ladies of The Rideau"
have lunch prepared and waiting for our arrival
at Seeleys Bay. Thank you ground crew...lunch
was great. As soon as we got back on the water,
it started to rain. The rain continued as we crossed
Whitefish Lake, but stopped before we reached
Jones Falls. This is the longest portage of the
trip. By the time we reach the top of the hill
beside the dam, we are 18 metres higher then we
were. It's a good hike carrying a kayak!
After a brief rest we paddle across Sand Lake
and stop for the night at Davis Locks. Ann Dionne
has prepared tonight's dinner. Thank you Ann the
chicken lasagna was great. After dinner some of
the boaters asked us to join them in a parade.
They got dressed up in costumes and we followed
them from boat to boat where they told each boater
they had a choice. Either give us a donation,
or we're all coming aboard. We got a lot of donations.
