There was a nasty storm yesterday afternoon that’s knocked out the power at our last lock in the Richelieu River.
We had arrived yesterday with about 45 minutes to spare before the lock closed for the night only to find it already shut down from the power outage. So here we still sit, hoping for the lock to re-open sometime today.
It’s funny, ’cause yesterday morning we were talking about how nice it would be to have a rest – the kind where you can just flop out on the couch and read a book all day without the pressure of constantly being on the move or of seeing the sights in a town you may not revisit in the foreseeable future.
We got what we asked for, I guess. We were both flopped out reading for the better part of the morning, but now we’re bored and ready to get moving again.
