What a successful weekend at the Ottawa Regatta! We left on the buses after early bird and breakfast Friday morning. We drove all morning and got to Ottawa in the early afternoon. After getting settled into the hotel we all headed out for dinner at Tucker’s Marketplace. They have a buffet dinner with lots of choices available and it is always a camper favourite. After dinner the campers had time to walk around the Byward Market in Ottawa and visit the Rideau Centre. We all headed back to the hotel after for an early bedtime to get ready for paddling! We woke up bright and early at 6:30 on Saturday morning to grab some breakfast before we headed to Carleton Place Canoe Club for the regatta. All of the girls did amazing in their races and had a lot of fun! The weather was sunny and beautiful all day. We had a pizza dinner at the regatta before heading back to the hotel. Saturday night we walked to Parliament Hill to see the light show! It is a show all about the history of Canada, and it is amazing to see the city at night. On Sunday we had a bit of a sleep in and then had breakfast at the hotel before heading to Tanger Outlet mall for a bit of shopping before heading back to camp. We arrived at camp just in time for Sunday cookout! The girls enjoyed burgers and sausages with cake for dessert, and marshmallows to roast in the campfire. We all shared our favourite stories from the regatta. It was a fantastic weekend and everyone is definitely ready for bed!
