We are on land once again. We arrived at Lock one thisbpast Friday and began looking fir a marina that could lift this beast out of the water and store her until next spring. We had made arrangements to go to the Deseronto Yatch club but they are still flooded. Baycrest was our second choice but the travel lift can't lift this heavy boat. We spent the week end visiting with family and friends and enjoying the hot weather. We are at Bay Marine near Trenton which is quite suitable. We will winterized and batten her down until next spring when we will launch her and take her to Newfoundland. It has been a stressful trip with all the scraping bottom and the locks but still very enjoyable.... read more

Beautiful sunny day, possibly the warmest yet since we have been on the water. Traffic is still very light with only the three of us transiting together as well as the Trent Severn barge. They are picking up all the misplaced markers and resetting them. Lots of geese and swan families along the way. Weeds continue to be a menace but we are happy about the deeper water. We arrived at Frankford Lock where our good friend Peggy was there waiting for us. She took us to her house for dinner and a welcome shower. Thanks Peggy and Bob for the wonderful evening.... read more

Canada’s National Air Force Museum is located in Trenton, Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Ontario west of Kingston. Since 1994 it has occupied a 15 acre (6 ha) site adjacent to the Canadian Forces Base. At present there are 27 aircraft and 36 memorials and cairns on display, plus some 9,000 flagstones commemorating members, both serving and deceased. Devoted to the history of the (RCAF), it has more than 40,000 artifacts from both Canada and abroad, including paintings, weapons, and military memorabilia. Of course I can only give a small sampling in these photos. The “crown jewel” is a 1945 Halifax heavy bomber, retrieved from a deep lake in Norway in 1995, airlifted ... read more
