We visited the Remington Factory Museum in ILion before leaving today.
From ILion, we traveled the Erie Canal. This part of the canal is a straight narrow “ditch”, not nearly as scenic or interesting as the river parts.
A Blue Heron followed us for a long way.
To keep it interesting, some planes provided entertainment.
So far on the trip every lock was a lift. We entered low and the water filled the lock raising the boat to the next level. Today, we went through the first of two locks that lowered the boat to the next level.
As the water was lowered, a waterfall appeared at the end of the lock.
We ended the day tied up on the wall at Sylvan Beach. It was a great location with more than one ice cream shop. Then we walked along Oneida Lake and watched the sunset.
