August in the Ottawa River Valley (6 in the 613 for the 150)

Ajax to Kingston to Kemptville to Pembroke – by car

In and around Pembroke by bike: 14km

Monday,  August 14

Sunny with some clouds. 25C
Glor, Yvonne and myself met at my parent’s place in Ajax on Sunday night.  We had a big drive ahead of us on Monday so after we spent a little while getting caught up, it was off to bed.
In the morning we were all eager to get going. After breakfast we left the house and made a quick stop at the Kingston cottage and then the Glenburnie grocery store for a picnic lunch. Then we drove another 2 hours to Kemptville where we picked up Duncan and his bike. 

Then more driving,  past Ottawa and on to Pembroke where we’ll be starting our journey along the Ottawa River.  We took a short ride through town to stretch our legs and then made our way back where we stopped at Finnegan’s for supper. 

Everyone was satisfied with their menu choices and we had a great time recounting our travels today. We spent several hours working on a crossword puzzle during the drive and we think we answered it correctly along with a ton of laughs.

We have adjoining rooms in the motel so getting organized in the morning should be a piece of cake. Will keep you posted…
