While in town this morning I noticed this huge cruise boat entering the Buckhorn Liftlock number 31. Now this I have to see how they do it. So the following pictures I took thought were interesting. They have to lift the bow to fit in the lock.

|drop the bow|

|lower the cabin, see captains head sticking out?|
|just gonna make it|
|raising the roof and masts now and away they go|
So looks like it could be a nice cruise by Ontario Waterway cruises click here . Fares $1,793.00 per person for 5 days, plus a limited selection of bar drinks at about $4.00 each! Welcome to expensive Canada. Sure it would be an awesome cruise but, I think a Caribbean cruise for less than half of that for 8 days is more within our budget. We can look at these nice cruises but.
Think I will go back home clean some berries and have my bologna sandwich at our wonderful campsite much more affordable, even after buying our expensive berries. And filling up our car with cheap (for Canada) gas. $1.10 a liter ($4.15 per US gallon) much better than most places here at $1.28 liter ($4.83 a US gallon).
Now puttering around and can enjoy our books in the shade with a nice cool breeze. Temps about 25c but feels like 35c with 98% humidity, that feels like 95 f, but we do have a nice breeze so no a/c yet. Will cool off later this evening so should be just fune for sleeping.
Then at 4 o'clock the social bour begins, at Pat and Norm's so grab a beverage and chair over to their place to solve all the problems of the world. Git than done in an hour a few more people drop by and Suzie got her doggie fix with BJ (Billie Jean)and Max.

But now time for me to go home fire up our Weber Q and grill a couple pork skewers that I had marinaded all afternoon, add some potato salad, coleslaw couple devilled eggs I made and a garlic bun.
|our Weber does the job|
|throw it on a plate and we are happy|
Supper done, we can read for a while outside and enjoy this awesome summer weather, before calling it a night.
