    Hahah, maybe because they are called, 'Canada Geese'. I don't know, but they take over in some areas.

    ^Thank you kindly!

    I try to break my biking distance record every summer. So far, my longest ride was the other day at 30km's along the trails. I ended up at Rideau Falls which also looks towards the Gatineau, Quebec side of the Ottawa river.






    That is a water taxi you see in the water. It goes from the Ottawa side to the Gatineau, Quebec side. And this taxi can also take people to see the falls for a fee.

    On Canada Day (July 1st) I did a walk through Wakefield, Quebec which is a very picturesque place within the Gatineau Park. We walked around quite a bit, but sadly most of the restaurants with patios were closed being a holiday.

    That is a covered bridge in the distance. We also walked through it from one side to the other. It is a walking bridge only.



    Covered bridge that has quite a history. Had to rebuilt in the 90's.




    Your truly from Canaduh. lol

    Looks like some of that water might be good for fishing, too. I don't suppose you ever did that, did you? As a life-long game fisherman, I had it on the bucket list to head that way for some fishing experiences. (no...not the one where you catch the 50LB salmon then run for your life as the bear 'takes it off you'...!)

    That is my friend's bike. It is worth almost $2000, but she got it on sale for about $1500 three years ago now. My bike is more of a hybrid, but it is decent. I tried a racer bike, but I am not that fond of it, especially because it has low handlebars and you have to hunch down a lot. Maybe in the future i'll change my mind.

    I have fished a few times, TD. In fact, I will may be go fishing next weekend with my new beau who loves to fish. Around here we get pike, sea bass and perch mostly. You'd get salmon if you went out to the west coast of Canada (and see bears as well ).

    Just got back from a 25 km bike ride with my best pal. We biked along the Rideau Canal which closes the road on the weekends to cars. There is a bike path along the canal, but you can also ride on the road. We then went downtown near the parliament buildings and on the trail behind the parliament along the Ottawa River.





    In the winter they freeze the canal and you can skate on it. It is the longest canal I believe in the world.

    The Rideau locks are very high. We got there when boats were waiting and they had to open the locks and let the boats go from the Ottawa river onto the Canal.

    Here is where they are trying to go.



    So, we went down there and had to cross the locks with our bikes, we just lift them and walk them across. Then we rode behind the parliament buildings along the Ottawa River. Gatineau is across the bridge there.



    The grey locks you see a bit in the distance is where we crossed over.
