The next morning (Monday), we were the first ones through the lock at Bobcaygeon. We were on a mission at this point to get home, and we had several large bodies of water to cross. The morning once again started out nice, but turned into another horrible day of rain, wind and whitecaps.

By 2:30pm, the end was in sight. The last stretch of the Trent that puts you into Lake Simcoe is a series of 5 locks - one after the next. If you look close, you can actually see all of the locks in sequence.

And this is the sight as you are about to enter Lake Simcoe. Four long days, $1300 in fuel, an undisclosed amount of rum and cokes got us here.

Once we hit Lake Simcoe, the waves picked up again. In this lake, it is not so much the size of the waves, but that they hit you from all directions. It doesn't really matter what direction the wind is coming from - the lake will through everything that it has at you.

At approximately 4:05pm, we pulled into our marina in Orillia. It was a long haul, but a necessary one. Now the summer aboard FOXSEA LADIES can begin!
