By staying another night, it meant we had a long day today with about 45 miles to cover and another 7 locks, but around 3:30 we pulled along side the pier in Ottawa. The tail end of the Rideau River runs right through downtown Ottawa and culminates with an 8 step flight of locks. Just before the locks is a long embankment where you can tie up right in the heart of the city, and that's where we are staying. Tonight we are off to dinner in the big city, and a desert of Beaver's Tail which sounds like a cross between fried dough and a crepe. Some local boaters that we shared a couple of locks with said we can't visit Ottawa without sampling them.
