Keeping it Local

Along the way Carol and Glenn are trying their best to buy locally grown fruits and veggies to give them the energy they need to keep on paddling!

In preparation for this adventure they were very conscious to buy local fruits and veggies in Kingston, ON to dehydrate!

Check out this delicious pasta dish made with locally grown veggies they found at a market!

They Made it to Montreal

Carol and Glenn have made it to Montreal!

Before they arrived they had to go through Carillon Canal Locks which is the deepest locks in Canada. The lock drops 65 ft and the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and awesome! This is the first of 3 locks over the next few days.

After they cleared the locks they used their sail for the first time in strong winds and waves which was a successful first attempt.

Keep on Paddling.
