Day 51: Ottawa to Grenville

July 30th
Ottawa to Grenville
Distance: 97km

Today we couldn't leave without seeing a little more of Ottawa/Hull area. Therefore we stopped at the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau. This is an amazing museum with tons of exhibits including exhibits on First Nations, African beading, Nursing, Skating and the History of Canada, to name a few that we saw. After lunch at the museum, we headed out of Gatineau on our way to Montreal.

The road here is so nice!! It is really flat and passes by several farms and towns. So many of the towns have old Catholic churches and lots of history. We were also cycling along the Ottawa river so we could see Ontario on the other side of the water!

Cycling almost to Grenville, we decided to stop at a campground along the water called "La Place Rouge". Throughout today, Jennica and Alisha have had many opportunities to practice their french, despite the fact that it is very rusty.
