Trent-Severn (Part 3)

16 Jun

 The leaves are a different color. They shimmer with silver; less heavy – more ethereal than before.

silver
I think we’ve traveled into some other reality…one where humanity has blended rather than dominated the world.

The air is filled with scents less poignant than before. Even the flowers seem to understand that subtlety is needed. The startling perfume of honeysuckle and rose has been replaced with a leafy, fecund presence with a hint of wood smoke – brimming with life and potential.

We’ve wandered along the Trent-Severn and ended up…

…at the Peterborough Marina, in, you guessed it…

city
…the City of Peterborough! Two ‘dock hands’ caught our lines with such professionalism and efficiency that I felt I just HAD to mention them in this blog (thank you Ben and Kate – hands down the best we’ve seen along the Loop).

Tonight will be filled with a bit of a wandering around the city, and will eventually end with dinner at one of the local craft breweries. It doesn’t get much better, does it?!?

    We are SO confused! Is this a side trip, or does it get you back to one of the Great Lakes? At any rate, the scenery is gorgeous, and has Boyd really found a craft beer brewery at every stop? Cheers and Safe Travels!

      Well, the Thousand Islands was a side trip (and really really worth it) but this is THE LOOP! Yep, we’ll go into Georgian Bay then Lake Huron after the Trent-Severn. Give Petey a scratch from us (and Carol a big smooch)!

    Keep an eye out for the Woodwards — a couple from Haig Point. I understand they’re in the Erie Canal now, but I’m not certain how fast they’re moving.

      what is the name of their boat?

    Where the heck are you going, by the way? We’re looking at Spot and it looks like you’re getting yourselves landlocked!

      …no no no , we’re on course! We’re on the canal system, the Trent-Severn, but I have to admit it does get very skinny at times.
