Gear for canoe trip, Kirkfield Lock Lift
I enjoy visiting the locks on the Trent-Severn Waterway to watch the boats be raised or lowered to a different level so crew members can continue on their journey on the canal system between Lakes Ontario and Huron.
A lot to pack here!
Usually the boats are powered by motors, not paddles, though. As you can see, I was on the other side of the canal with a zoom camera, my point-and-shoot. I was spying, trying to get candid shots.

What I didn't realize until I got home was this family was completing a journey Mom and Pop started a few years ago - a trip by canoe across Canada.

As plain as the nose on my face! This canoeing family has a website!
What? Another crew member?
And the baby is not the only child along for the ride. Seems there's an almost four-year-old too.
Hope their journey is a fun and safe one!
