Thursday’s Adventures

Thursday, May 24th started with a trip to Tim Horton’s and a visit to the store for sunscreen. Then I decided I wanted my hair dye touched up, so I spent a few hours there.

Around 4:00, I headed to the day’s next adventure: Dow’s Lake, which is a  small man-made lake on the Rideau Canal.

I headed to Dow’s Lake Pavilion for a margarita and some lunch before heading to the kayak rentals!

I was nervous to take a kayak out because I haven’t been in years, but I really enjoyed it. It was about $20 CAD (about $15 USD) to rent a kayak for an hour, and then $12 CAD for each additional hour. I went for one hour and went on a short loop towards the right side of the lake, rather than farther down the Rideau Canal which can bring you all the way downtown!
