Ottawa River Boating

We were waiting for the lift-off of the hot air balloons across the river from the launch site of the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival (Festival de montgolfières de Gatineau). The skies were nice and clear, the weather for spectators was balmy, BUT, unfortunately, the wind speed stayed high and lift-off was postponed in hopes that the wind speed would drop (which it eventually did). To fill in the time, I set up my camera and photographed the many varieties of boats that were passing our vantage point on the banks of the Ottawa River.
