After a full day of going through Locks on the Trent Severn Waterway, we stopped overnight at the Lakefield Lock Wall to spend the night — no water or power, but luckily it was a cool night. The locks were slow so we didn’t make it to our planned marina. Lakefield was a nice place — we got off the boat and took a walk around town to see the sights and go to the local Canadian Post to mail a couple birthday cards.
We had Taco Tuesday at Henry’s Bar, the local Lakefield pub and eatery.
The next day we were off doing some more locks. We went from Lakefield to Bobcaygeon.
We stopped at Bobcaygeon because we were having an engine issue with overheating. Found out there are no mechanics really on the Trent Severn Waterway near us, but luckily another boat who we followed through locks that day had their son aboard who is a diesel mechanic — Thank the Lord! He made the comment that it looked/sounded like a fuel issue, and we also found that the new fresh water hose had come unattached. After getting the hose fixed, and replacing a generator battery (because our overnight on the lock wall found we had a dead one), we were good to go the next day.
There was a cute little downtown at the Bobcaygeon Lock — wish we had more time to take a look around, but we left when the lock opened at 9 AM.
