Day 8 of our trip home – Not as many miles, no locks, Nice time in Pittsford

We started the day at Mid Lakes Marina in Macedon.    Our plan for the day was to go to Pittsford where Bob and Vicki’s nephew Dale and family live.  As we passed Fairport they were having a festival, so the city was full of vendors and lots of activity.  We were on time for the lift bridge but the bridge tender was not.  So we had to hold position waiting for about 1/2 hour.  We had a short travel day with out any locks.   In Pittsford we tied up on the wall at the city facilities.  They provide water and power.   After a great lunch at Aladdins Natural Eatery, we explored the area in downtown Pittsford on the canal.   We met Bob and Vicki’s nephew Dale and family for dinner.  We gave the kids a tour of the boat which they found very interesting then ate delicious pizza from Pontillo’s. Later we went to Pittsford Farms Dairy for ice cream–the happening place! DSE_2748 DSE_2749 The canal was very straight with rock or concrete walls for most of the day.  There was one part of the canal with a 70-foot drop on the other side of the canal wall.  The bike paths and roads on either side made it look very park like.
