It was a good day and a good time participating in the Canada Day celebration in Kingston Ontario. July 1 here is like July 4 in the States; good food, good times and a spectacular fireworks display to cap off the celebration. We participated in a road race around the courthouse and the heat and humidity made us feel just like we were at home in Alabama.
Today's 73 mile cruise from Kingston to Trenton took us west along the Trent River past Nicholsons Point and Adolphustown to Deseronto and Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory to Belleville and into Trenton. Trenton marks the beginning of the Trent Severn Waterway from Lake Ontario, overland to the Georgian Bay north of Lake Huron. The morning started off calm and smooth. The crystal clear water was cold and kept us cool with a nice breeze blowing from the west. This breeze later picked up to a 15-18 mph wind with squall warning in our area. We managed to avoid the heavy weather but the wind was with us all the way in to Trenton but it was directly on our bow. We docked at Trent Port Marina and of the 102 marinas we have visited so far, this one has to be the best one yet.
That's the news and here's some views:
