Last night we stopped at a marina that was in Quebec so everybody was french. There wasn’t anyone there when we got there but another boater told Kylie the passcode to get into the bathrooms and in the dock gate. That was lucky. The gate had big enough gaps so I could squeeze through, so it didn’t matter if we had the code. Except for the bathroom.
This morning my family and I climbed up the side of the waterfall. It was fun. I bought treats from the lady, it was kind of hard to communicate but we figured it out.
This morning while the kids still slept Doug and I took Mini-Wheat for a walk into the little town of Cap-a-L’Aigle. What a pretty place.
There were a number of B&B’s but no real stores. It is very evident that the people here take pride in their gardens as they are beautiful. There is even one garden that you can buy tickets to enter. We didn’t but the whole time I thought that this would be an ideally stop for my Aunt Diane and Uncle Keith if ever they are heading to the east coast. I even photographed the perfect B&B’S for them.
When we bought our boat in the fall of 2012, we already had our fur-baby, Mini-Wheat. She had been a spontaneous decision/purchase in January 2012 and the boat was a spontaneous decision that summer. (You can read about our ‘getting a boat’ decision here)
Would we have gotten a puppy after we bought the boat and planned a trip? Probably No!

We departed Louise Bassin Marina in Quebec City at 10:30 this morning to take advantage of the tide and current. (playing the current). We passed by the waterfalls that we zip lined over yesterday. Here are a couple images from the river. Continue reading “Captains Log – June 13 2016”
While I did a load (or two) of laundry, Doug worked on editing and transferring videos. Bonus, he figured out how to post the 360 videos from our Ricoh Theta S camera. So cool! Many of you may have seen some already on Facebook. Cool, right?
We are quickly discovering that just keeping up with the daily Captains Log is time consuming, so adding editing/posting video into the mix will most likely not be happening as regularly as we would like, but we’ll try to share as much as possible as I know lots of family and friends are following along.

Everyone my parents talk to about this trip thinks it’s awesome, fun and exciting. Not from my perspective. I’m bored! It’s like a long car trip. There is not much to do when we are moving down the rivers.
Well, my mom thinks I could read, draw, make her anklets, colour, write a journal or take pictures but I mostly think. (And sometimes annoy Spencer)
