Night time on the beautiful Ottawa river. Just waiting to light the campfire and bust out the rum and guitars
The river is the border between the province of Ontario and Quebec. This pic was taken from the shore on the Quebec side just downstream of a town called Deep River that was established in the early 1940's to house the scientists who came from England and around the world to develop nuclear power in Canada at the Chalk River nuclear research labs which are situated just downstream from Deep River. I worked there for 35+ years developing and testing different types of nuclear reactor fuel for both research and power reactors.Where is your Ottawa River?
Always happy to share our little slice of heaven with others.Thanks for sharing, it looks pretty wide. Is it all navigable ?
Where does it enter the St. Lawrence river.
Glad you enjoyed your trips. Did you happen to check out Boldt Castle in the 1,000 islands while you were there? It's quite the place and the back story is fascinating too.Thank you again for sharing. Years ago my one son and I made two separate trips to Canada. The first was to visit The Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence river. Starting from Kingston and going to Montreal. We made it as far as Cornwall. Farther up north a freighter hit it's anchor while waiting to go through one of the locks and put a hole in it's bottom, and backed logged the transit system. So we went back to Kingston, pulled my girl and trailered her to Montreal, and boated around there for a couple of days.
The next trip was to Lake Superior, Georgian Bay, The French River, The Benjamin Islands, The apposable Islands, and The Trent Severn Trail, and went up The big Chute, what an amazing adventure that was.
My girl and I have been going to Canada for 30 years now, Right now we travel The St. Clair River and the tributaries that connect to it.
The thing I love about most of your water ways, is you leave it to nature.
No, we were on our way to Montreal, but did stop to look and take pictures. What a beautiful area and what a beautiful castle. Would love to read about the history of it, I will look it up on the web. thank you for passing that on.Glad you enjoyed your trips.
