Trent Severn Waterway-Severn Falls, Canada - 6/23-24/06

Our mission was to go off the channel today to find a remote anchorage, a few miles south of the Big Chute Marine Railway, for a couple of days. We were successful in finding the perfect spot tucked away in The Lost Channel.

It is quiet here except for the occasional fishing boat whizzing past. Last night we watched some otters working and sunning themselves. Saw the mosquitoes decend on our boat and heard the loons far away. Early this morning we had a lovely loon song just outside of our boat. This is what anchoring is all about.

Today we will take the dingy up the the Big Chute to see how it works so there are no surprises when it is our turn to go through tomorrow.
