After waking up, went to washroom and when I came back Julie had our tent packed up, never seen her move so fast, think she really wants a day off! Made coffee and skipped breakfast, we were off by 9. Strong headwind and realized no matter how many km's in a day it's the last 3 which are the toughest, in this case we only had three to do and every 2 minutes Julie was like, are we there yet? Are we there yet? Not much to tell about the paddle as we were only out for half an hour, oh, Julie got swamped once, she hasn't learned proper brace technique yet not matter how much I instruct her.
Arrived in Smiths Falls and had camp setup by 10, time to enjoy a day off. First order of the day, breakfast, funny little diner called "Roosteraunt" lined all with rooster this and that, great food though, I had eggs Benedict and Julie a western omelet, wasn't 5 minutes later Tim Hortons was in hand, ahhh home sweet home. Walked through Smiths Falls which is a beautiful little canal town and reminds me of Fenelon Falls and Cambelford combined. Did prerequisite laundry at the local coin laundry then off to camp site to relax for the afternoon.
Trip to Beer store (one of many) and swim off the pier, was great, would get hot, jump in and swim to cool off, drink beer, repeat (ok coolers but had alcohol content). Then put out the hammock and Julie and I took an afternoon siesta in the shade, was great, cool breeze coming off the lake and wasn't hot at all. Hit the beer store to stock up for tomorrow and then for dinner followed by Tims and Dairy Queen. Oh ya was running low on pepper so scammed 100+ packets from local Harveys, it's a wonderful thing.
All in all a perfect day off, ready to paddle again, not sure Julie feels the same way. ;)
I am about to have a shower now, portable, fill with water hang from tree and sun warms, very cool and works like a charm, Julie just had one and said water a little cold so I will go fill with hot water from washroom for mine.
