Bobcageon to Thorah Lock 40 August 18th

The 18th was another many lock day. We started at Bobcaygeon (Lock 32), went thorough Fenelon Falls — which was a beautiful place and looked like a nice stop — but we pushed on…

We had to go through a narrow canal/river on our way to Kirkfield Lift Lock — and had to wait for a houseboat to come through — not wide enough for both of us.

Then we passed through a very narrow channel that was surrounded by lots of shallow water on our way to Kirkfield = another hydraulic lift — it was fun!

We had to stop for the night at Thorah Lock — as the next lock would be closed before we got there. Thorah was another very nice lock wall — again with no power, but we had the whole place to ourselves. The lock was surrounded by farmland, so it was a very quiet night.

Many of the locks on the Trent-Severn Waterway were manually operated by the lock operators. Depending on the height of the water in the lock, there could be 10 or more turns of the wheel to open the lock doors.
