Lock 6 to Campbellford Ontario

 We departed the lock wall at 8:15 AM to arrive at the next lock by 9:15 when they open for business. We tied up on the blue line to the lockmaster knew we awaiting lockage.  We walked Bryce in the adjacent park until the lock was ready.  
 We entered the lock following a Camano 31 who spent the night on he wall with us.  A former sailboater, I knew I was in trouble when he bragged about his fuel economy which was accomplished  by never going over 6 MPH!!!!

We had to traverse 6 locks today and 32 miles to Cambellford Ontario. 

 We were traveling on the Trent River which was running about 1-2 MPH against us.  No problem for us but my new buddy slowed to 4-5 MPH. We had to stay together for the locking we were told.  

We tied up to a wall at a park in Campbellford provided by the Chamber of Commerce, complete with power.  
Note the statute of the $2 coin called a "Tooney" in the park with Island Hopper in the background.  We arrived at 2PM checked out the town and decided to grill on the boat.
