I love Ottawa, I know I’ve said it before, but it’s so true. I went down by the Ottawa Locks today, and they were moving boats in. I hadn’t realised though that the locks aren’t electrically powered, they’re manual. It takes 4 people (2 on each side) to move the gears which move the lock doors, then the water moves in to raise the boats up to get into the Canal. It’s really neat in a geeky-dorky kind of way. But that fits me.
