I'm excited. This is my 1000th post.

This small bit of white water is the last chute on the Petawawa River before it empties into the Upper Ottawa River. I spent many a summer's day swimming around these rocks and currents.

Comments are welcome.

Well, yes... and no. The perspective of this shot is somewhat compressed. It does look bigger in person. I'll post a closer shot when I get a chance.

On the other hand, the world used to be a much bigger place. It seems to have shrunk a bit over the years. :?

Very nice Tom! I bet those rapids look pretty big if your swimming or canoeing in them, seems like they always look smaller from shore!!

Hey Bob;

I didn't say we were smart. :lol: We had a lot of fun, though. One of the best parts was body surfing on the standing waves that formed over some of the rocks. (...and If you think that'sdumb, we also used to play tag on the log booms on the Qu├Ębec side of the Ottawa River)

Cheers,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada
