The Shellbacks headed up to Peterborough to the Canadian Canoe Museum. It's got a fantastic collection of canoes, ranging back to some of the earliest Canadian canoes in existence. Thanks to Dianne Leggatt for organizing the trip.
After visiting the Canoe Museum, many Shellbacks went for lunch at the Ashburnam Ale House.
Peterborough is home to, among other things, the Peterborough Lift Lock on the Trent-Severn Waterway. It's the world's highest hydraulic lift lock, and, completed in 1904, one of the world's most interesting examples of engineering. It's been in continual use since then. As it was about a one minute drive from the ale house, I took a look and saw a canoe tour from the Canoe Museum catching a lift, as shown in this time lapse.
