Trent Severn Waterway

From Gravenhurst we drove through areas of rolling hills, flat land, corn fields and cattle farms.

Not all pictures I take are of water!

We entered the Trent Severn Waterway town of Bobcaygeon at noon on a blistering hot day.


The highlight was meeting with one of my dearest friends for lunch.  She planned for us to meet at a restaurant opposite a lock.

Meeting the Bobcaygeon bear!

After eating we strolled beside the last co and watched several pleasure boats pass through. We even chatted with an officer on a police boat in the lock. He allowed me to take a picture but asked I not post it on social media. You’ll have to visit me personally if you want to see it!

After spending a pleasant time wandering up and down the street exploring the quaint shops, I bid a tearful farewell to my friend.

Fenelon Falls

We drove a short distance to Fenelon Falls. There we parked at one end of town and walked to the other end. We went past another lock and saw the falls. They are under a bridge and billed as a mini Niagara Falls. Later we walked over to a stand of trees and had a lovely view of the river.

It was also in Fenelon Falls that we went to Station Gallery, a cooperative of local artisans. There were so many wonderful things here that we would have liked to purchase but traveling in a van gives us very limited space which meant we had to leave them behind. That was probably a good thing for the bank account.

We only touched on a tiny portion of the Trent Severn Waterway and it appears I’ve found another area I’d like to return to.
