We arrived in Peterborough complete exhausted! This is the 'brother city' of Kingston but I was only concerned in finding our campsite. The TransCanada Trail runs right throught the lock station where we camped. I was asleep before the sun set.
In the morning the weather was greay. We packed up our bikes and cycled down along the waterway to see the Lift Lock in operation. This is a systemt that looks like a big water teetertotter, some ingenius way to raise boats over tall rapids. As it began to rain harder we decided we couldn't wait any longer and se we pedaled on in the rain hoping for a flat trail. The city looked lovely, despite the rain, right along a big body of water with lots of cafes and patios.
