Buckhorn, ON

Leaving Young’s Point, we threaded our way through the lakes of the Kawartha Region. First Clear Lake.
On Stony Lake the channels are often very narrow, and trawlers must be careful to stay within the buoys. It often gets very tight and there are lots of rocks.
You wind your way through many tiny islands, some with summer cottages on them.

The scenery here is absolutely spectacular, the day crystal clear and a 10. 

 At Burleigh Falls Lock we moved onto Lovesick Lake and caught a glimpse of this water fall.

Arriving at Buckhorn Lock, we were again joined by the Kawartha Voyageur, now returning from Peterborough with a new load of passengers.

We took an interesting walk to the dam where we expected to see two things; boiling water from the release of downstream water; and, fishermen. We were not disappointed on either account.

This is our third day off the grid and off the air. Hopefully by tomorrow we will reach Bobcaygeon, where we'll stay at a marina and reconnect.
