Westport Harbour to Jones Falls Ontario

We left early after one more quick trip to the grocery store.  Another really nice cruising day on the Rideau Waterway.  Passed through several very narrow channels & canals and went trough several more lock stations, finishing up with the four locks at Jones Falls.
This is the first time since the St. Ours Lock on the Richelieu River that we had to lock down instead of up.  You really have to watch your fender placement.   When you enter the lock, the water level is only inches below the top of the lock.  You can't reach the lock cables so you pass your dock line to the dock staff who run it around the lock cable guides.  We were headed for an anchorage in Morton Bay, but decided to stay on the "blue" line dock below the locks.
