Wednesday August 1st. Biked from Cobden to Ottawa 125kms. Had to take Old Highway 17 at Arnprior as cycling is not allowed on the 417 which is partially a gravel road:-( I went through a town called Carp where I lost my bearings. Fortunately I met another cyclist, Dena, who helped me get back on track by using Google Maps. A short time later I was at the outskirts of Ottawa. Arrived at Beth and Kerry's home in Ottawa early in the afternoon where I was welcomed, made feel at home, and treated royally. After supper we did the tourist thing driving around downtown Ottawa, sight seeing. We saw the Parliment buildings, Prime Ministers residence, Rideau Canal and many other places of interest. Tomorrow I will be going to Fred and Bonnie Cappuccino's home, founders of Child Haven International, near Maxville.
