It's now Friday night and boy, has it ever been
a long, hot day!
Last night, the kayakers pulled into Baxters
Conservation Area around 5:30 pm. and did they
stink! The water in today's paddle is more stagnant
so it tends to be a bit more pungent. Despite
having no running water, Baxters does have a sandy
beach not far from our campsite so most of the
kayakers went for a quick dip before dinner.
The feature on tonight's menu was Lorraine's
homestyle chili -- it was delicious and had everyone
going back for more.
But the big news was the power outage that's
hit chunks of Ontario and the U.S. Glancing across
the canal, we could see the houses were pretty
dark. After dinner, Dennis pulled out a radio
and we listened in on some of the breaking news.
Luckily, the outages had no effect on our group
-- at least not tonight.
