A few weekends ago our family went to Owl Whitewater Rafting on the Ottawa river. The drive there gives you a real feel for just how big Canada is, driving for hours and hours through the forests. It also makes you wonder how some of these small businesses survive on a 3 month season.
All along the road were motels. I had to snap a shot of this one, and I had to wonder … who would stay there …
On the rafting side, it was amazing. Owl is a great outfit. The staff were great. The river was at 10’ so we were able to do all the rapids. The food was good and the facilities were simple but clean. After all .. we were ‘roughing it’. What I did not realize is that Ottawa has the 2nd largest set of rapids in North America. It was pretty amazing.
I had a waterproof camera along for the ride. Lots of fun.
And we were lucky enough to have the sun come out.
A cool Canadian adventure.
