After making it across Lake Ontario, we were having an engine heating problem. We found out it was a melted 6″ exhaust elbow . This was a part that we had to order. but luckily we got it in 2 days. In the meantime, we walked around the town and got to see a movie while we were there. The marina itself was very nice, nicely landscaped with new amenities and floating docks due to a fire a few years earlier.
The Marina was very near the Canadian Air Force Base in Trenton, so we saw lots of big planes flying over the marina every day.
We took a walk to the farmers market and bought some Butter Tarts — they are similar to miniature Pecan Pies. We also got to visit Larry’s favorite place, McDonalds with COVID restrictions.
With our repairs complete, we started up the Trent Severn Waterway. Our first lock up was just about a mile away from the marina — this would be the first of 12 locks on the first day.
