So, I've just come back from a very exciting canoe trip with two friends of mine.
We paddled 100 km on the Rideau Canal in Ontario, took 5 leisurely days to do it and had quite the adventure ;)
We paddled "uphill" for the first 60 or so km, then it was downhill from there. How is that possible? The Rideau Canal has an elaborate lock system - every station we passed had 1-4 locks that let you climb up or down to the next water level without having to portage.
Some locks only lifted or dropped by 3 feet, but others were 16 feet if I remember correctly - quite the drop!
I had a great time - obviously got no quilting done and haven't touched a needle or pedal since I got back. Also, it looks as if I'm going to be incredibly busy for the next little while - more in August! Hope you guys all get more quilting done than I - or at least do something equally fun :)
