Bobcaygeon, ON - A Welcome Respite.

Buckhorn Lake is another of the lakes we cross as we traverse the Trent Severn Waterway. Beautiful and lined with interesting cottages. Some expansive with perfect landscaping and others are modest and well-loved. Narrow passages cause us to carefully watch the charts and chart plotter. Crawdad lead the way and Grainan followed. Tomorrow Grainan will lead and Crawdad will follow.
Boathouse and storage. We see many older commercial buildings along the Waterway.

Girls and boys just want to have fun!

Danger!

More cottages along Buckhorn Lake.

The buoys were winding under the bridge. Critical to watch the chart and find the buoys. Buoys are often moved.

This guy always wanted a totem pole.

Not only are some of the passages narrow, but depths are an issue as well. A few of our fellow Looper boats have grounded in the last few days. Sand and Salt hit something with its propellers. Rich and Carol were fortunate to find Buckhorn Marina was able to help with a diver to change a propeller. Many boats carry a spare set of propellers. We do not have spairs, so are hoping we dont' have an issue. In our case, a bent propeller would mean waiting until our propeller would be repaired, probably in another location. Please cross your fingers as we enter the Canadian Shield. These rocks are not forgiving!
Kate and Gloria tethered to Grianan. Cooling off from the heat!

Many old, stately homes in Bobcaygeon.

Tonight we enjoyed dinner with Carol and Rich from Salt and Sand and Kate and Greg from Grianan.
