Our Annual Ottawa River Boat Cruise was held last week and it turned out to be a fantastic sunny day.  We had 10 members in attendance and took one pontoon boat out owned and expertly captained by Michael DuManoir.   We motored to Swisha, turned around and stopped for our picnic lunch at Frasers Landing.  Thank you, thank you to Michael for the use of his boat, and also for the refreshing wake up drenching received on the way back lol.  It was a wonderful day and enjoyed by all.
