We decided to hang around Peterborough through the weekend. The week is supposed to be rainy and hot. Here we have a secure mooring and better yet, air conditioning.

Today was both rainy and hot.

Along the Way

Mary needed a down day after all the walking around Toronto. Not Dale. Mr Ambitious attacked the mustache yes dear has been wearing for the past couple of months. (stains from tannin in the river water).

Sculling is the use of oars to propel a boat by moving the oars through the water on both sides of the craft, or moving a single oar over the stern. By extension, the oars themselves are often referred to as sculls when used in this manner, and the boat itself may be referred to as a scull.

Rowers sit facing the rear of the boat and wield an oar that pivots in an oarlock. Boats are called shells. Rowers either scull (row with two oars) or sweep row (one oar). Sweep oars are longer than sculling oars. The rowing team is called a “crew.”
