Young's Point, ON

Today we moved a short distance up to Young's Point for a change of scenery rather than staying another night at Lock 26. Once we left Lock 26 we entered Katchewanooka Lake which reminded us much more of the lakes on the Rideau … small islands with narrow passages between them. These photos don't do the 360 degree panorama justice.

The weather forecast was for showers, and it did not disappoint. It has rained on and off all day.  Luckily we're parked near the Lakeside Trading Post, an ice cream/furniture/"tchotchke shop", housed in the old home of the original founder of the town.

Across from the lock wall where we were tied is the entrance to the dam (most if not all locks have a dam associated with it). There in the rapid current, barely above the rushing water, a loon sat on her nest. We feared that the rushing water following the rain and boat wakes were going to be too much for the loon’s nest ...
... but luckily it wasn’t.
