This is the part of the Rideau Canal that leads upriver to the Poonamalie Lock at the beginning of Rideau Lake. We spent 4 days cruising the system from Merrickville up to the end of Big Rideau Lake and back - Fabulous excursion!
I went for a float plane flight yesterday afternoon with Butcher Brophey. We flew over the city for a bit and then flew east over Trout Lake and down the Mattawa River system. This a view looking east over Trout Lake.
After playing hockey yesterday afternoon, I scooted down to the lake to catch the sunset. I wasn't as early as I'd like to have been due to an inconvenient, for me, traffic light. Even so, as usual on Lake Nipissing, the sunset was great.
