Day 11 – Open water, Haze on the horizon, and out of New York

Today was the first day on Lake Erie, no locks and no lift bridges, just open water and it was not chocolate brown.  We left the marina in Buffalo, NY headed for Erie, Pennsylvania with the goal of meeting our long-time friends Rob and Bonnie.  The lake was like glass leaving Buffalo, but it was hazy so not a great picture day.  Even though part of the day the lake was flat, those pesky flying bugs were out in full force! After pulling into the marina in Erie, we met Rob and Bonnie for a delicious, relaxing dinner.   DSE_3032   Leaving Buffalo, Erie Basin MarinaDSE_3031   Hazy day, got to check out the radar operation……….   DSE_3034   DSE_3035 The Admiral at the helm.

    Hey Teresa!
    Just incase Kevin forgot to mention it, pure lemon juice works fantastic to clean off the hull of the boat. I have bought all kinds of products to get that mud off and spent hours of elbow scrub on it only to find it not coming off…..I forget who mentioned lemon juice but man oh man she looks beautiful when you use it. I usually cleaned it after that to get the juice all off. Good luck. I hope my tip isn’t too late. Safe travels and thank you so much for all the pictures and updates. We are loving watching you go home. xox

      Hi Sharon & Kevin, Steve had already purchased some cleaner for the “Canal Smile,” but thanks for the tip about the lemon juice. Glad you’re enjoying our adventures.
