YES! Finally got to go on the Rideau Canal yesterday and it was fantastic! And such a beautiful day! Not a cloud, though the sunnyness made me wish I'd remembered the location of my sunglasses. We skated the whole thing from Dows Lake all the way downtown. I think we were on the ice for two hours or so (stopped for bever tails along the way). And there were so many things to look at along the way! Horse drawn sleighs, bed racing, ice sculptures, spectacular wipeouts... twas great! Now all i have to do is go skiing once and then I'm done with winter. Bring on the spring!
At the end of our journey: Gerry, Matt, Andrea, Oscar and Rod.
Me n' Ger.
I took this one for you, mum!
