Arriving from Poonamalie around 10 am I pulled the kayak out and stored it next to the Lockmaster’s house and headed into town for a coffee and hair cut.
After lunch I walked to the WalMart where I bought an new camera.
On the paddle back to Poonamalie the rain started to fall again. It was a nice paddle and I detoured up to the Poonamalie Dam to explore. I was met by a family of otters and floated along in the running stream before heading back to my tent around 4:30.
Return trip to Smiths Falls Detached Lock is about 10 km with a few detours.
