2. In Smith Falls we dried everything at a laundry mat, ate a good breakfast and laughed the night off. We picked up an extra flashlight and a waterproof tent and set out again, peddling north east at about 25k/h. We toured the Hershey's Chocolate Factory and got free samples. Also, we saw a fox. A few hours later we arrived in Merrickville which is full of friendly people and festivities. The season opening of the historic blockhouse museum was just getting underway so there was a blacksmithing demonstration and a rifle firing. A soldier dressed like he was in the 1800s asked us if we lived on our bikes (cute). He said we were really hardcore and told us about a scenic route towards Ottawa so we journeyed on in that direction. Along the road we saw a huge turtle laying eggs. We also saw a river otter in the evening. It was a very long push until near dark and we finally reached a place we could camp. The Long Island Locks were starlit and busy with fireflies! I have never seen so many glowbugs in all my life so I sat in the dark field and just watched.
