The next day breakfast was ham and cheese croissants, my sister Juanita was in charge of both breakfasts. After walking the dogs, we ladies went for a swim to cool off. The showers at all provincial parks are closed this season. There's not too much at Rideau River but it does have a nice little sand beach and picnic area. The beach was only about 750 m from our camp sites along a shore line trail. Steve stayed back at camp with the dogs. After our swim, Maureen and Steve drove to the nearby town for ice and bug spray as they had run out and the mosquitoes had been bad the first night. Lunch when they got back from town was naan bread pizzas.

The next trip is to Murphy's Point Provincial Park which is just a little further away. It's bigger and has some nice trails and walking paths we can do. There's also an old mine; I doubt the mine will be open since the parks are keeping most things closed, even boat rentals, but maybe you can still walk around the grounds.
