Day 8 - Leaving Ottawa

By Jonathan
We woke up way too early to get to the blue line for the eight flight lock the last of our 49 locks (finally!) Luckily we made it just in time or else we would be four hours waiting and that would suck. After we were done the locks we cruised down the Ottawa River. Then we anchored out near Petrie Island Beach and swam off the boat for awhile. We lounged on the boat and cruised to Montebello for the night. We went to Zouk's for dinner. Sadly, all the Morrisons are rather fluent in French - I am not but they still insisted that the waitress speak in French (pure torture). After we picked up a few groceries, we went back to the boat and played euchre. After that Aaron and I sat up top and watched stars for a little while then went to bed.
