Day 2

Today we tried to start the boat up, but we were having some trouble. Ysa had to keep on pumping the hand pump since water wouldn't go to the boiler. Pops made me turn the boat around five times as we got steam and lost it. Also, the whistle wouldn't work and we had trouble with the walkie talkies. Later Ysa and I went to the pool but since the water was so cold we just chilled around it (with sunscreen on of course). After the I took a nap and woke up to the sound of our whistle blowing. It was a pretty laid back day, but tomorrow's going to be bigger.

Day 1

We are here in Canada! Ysa and I did our ritual of sitting alone at dinner and then stealing the bread rolls to feed the fish down at Chaffey's lock. It's so hot in our cabin, Hemlock. For those who know the Opinicon, it's near the place where you keep your trailers. We haven't taken the boat out yet, but we do have it docked. Tomorrow we plan to cruise around and them come back in time for lunch.
