Our day on the lake was pleasantly cloudy after the heat and drought which we have been experiencing in this region. In fact, it even rained during our outing. Up we went to Bobcaygeon where we docked and enjoyed a picnic lunch. The gals then went shopping and I meandered around town while Larry stayed on board with his reading and their three dogs.
We barely made it back to the boat before the rain came down, but it didn't last very long. Then, Larry piloted us to Fenelon Falls before we turned back to the marina, home and supper.
All in all, we enjoyed a very pleasant day.
|A view from the boat before we launched from the marina. I was glad that the box on the left was spelled Sanctuary and not Sanktuary. One little letter makes a big difference, don't you agree?|
|The ladies caught up on the latest news as we cruised northeast on Sturgeon Lake.|
|Larry happily kept us on course while Oliver sniffed the breeze.|
|We docked at Bobcaygeon, and Sue disembarked to go shopping with Marianne.|
|I strolled around town for awhile. This building and sign caught my eye.|
|I took this photo of a cottage on a little island almost in the Bobcaygeon harbour as we departed.|
|The clouds were interesting all day, but I took this photo after the rain.|
|Another pontoon vessel heads into another town, our second destination, Fenelon Falls. This craft was a rental with a built in cabin area. Such rentals are fairly popular on both the Trent and Rideau systems.|
