We left Pittsford continuing west on the canal. This part of the canal is like traveling through a park, with joggers, runners, bicyclers, and rowers. The two locks just past Pittsford each raise the boat 25.1 feet. That was the last locks for a while. The new challenge is waiting for the lift bridges. Multiple times the bridge operator was off doing other things, and we had to wait to get through the bridge. Further along the canal, we looked down at towns and houses adjacent to the canal. We stopped in Brockport for lunch, and ate outside next to the canal actually lower than the water level. We continued on to Albion, NY and tied up for the night. The boat De De was there when we arrived. We first tied up near them in Waterford at the beginning of the canal journey. Tomorrow we hope to make it to the Buffalo area which will end the canal and locks. Bob and Vicki will get off there and Teresa and I will continue on to Erie, PA. It will not be the same with our GREAT crew who made it possible to get through all the locks and bridges of the Erie canal.
Pittsford has a large rowing facility, and a controlled rapids for practice
